This works fine in all browsers I tried other than IE.

Goto the site with IE, click on the reviews.html and then back to the index.html, notice the layout jumps
out of line and off to the left side. This is a crazy simple layout with minimal code, so where
am I screwing it up? Other browsers are smart enough to work, but surely there is a simple fix
for IE right?

(oh and hello everyone, I like where the site is going, wish I had more time lately to hang around)

Your site looks ok in IE6.

There's a JavaScript error on the Photo page. Replace document.mainimage.src = list.options[list.selectedIndex].value; by

code:
var m = document.getElementById('mainimage')||document.images['mainimage'];
if( m )m.src = list.options[list.selectedIndex].value;



Also the whole markup could be much cleaner:

First things first, run your page through the W3C validator to see the deprecated tags and custom attributes you're using. Clean them, as well as all the unnecessary empty tags ( i.e. <p> </p> , <h1>&nbsp;</h1> , <p>&nbsp;</p> , ... ) whose effect is better achieved using CSS.

Navigations are best done using UL and LI. After all they are just a list of links, so use the right tags for it. Also there's no need to use 5 times class="navitem". You know it's a navitem since its a descendant of #navcontainer. Chances are that you don't even need the class="navitemlast" either.

The markup of the Photos page needs no TABLE. Using CSS set the #main to text-align:center; Add a FORM around your form fields, and you're done.



Hope that helps.
And sorry I mostly check the Quickchanges page which makes me miss some threads at times.

... funny images btw
