Not seeing it

IE8 both in IE8 and IE7 Standards mode resizes as expected - kyak picture remains center of page and reduces.

Firefox on the other hand - once screen gets below certain size relocates image off to the right.

Can you give steps to replicate.

Personally I wouldn't waste too much time on IE - it has such a small percentage of the market and doesn't run on mobile devices - so if you are concerned about those then IE shouldn't be on the radar (at least not for 8 and 9 - windows mobile won't be running these anyway)

I don't think IE can find your shiv. Trying to browse to http://www.c-kayak.jcwebhostza.com/js/html5.js gives a file not found
