IE woes - Relative positioned float

I created a simple template with common tags. It serves as a quick
reference guide for my web development efforts. The web page renders
great in Firefox, yet becomes a mess in IE. The HTML and CSS code
validates on the server. You may view the template at the following
link.

These tests relate to FireFox 1.0 and IE 6.0 on XP. Let me know if you
encounter further deviations with your browser or OS platform.

Top Button
Firefox renders quick link to the top of the page as a relative float
positioned at the bottom of the page. My top button moves as you
scroll down the page. IE renders this div element at the bottom of the
page; partially falling off the left side of the page. In addition,
another mystery box appears at the top of the page within the
MainContent container. Please let me know if you realize why this
scenario occurs.

IE can't handle position: fixed
You'll need to either resort to Javascript or the site below may provide a
css solution.
