z-index problem IE

P: n/a
I have been trying to get an image to sit in the background behind my
content div tag. I have nested two div's inside of another. The main
div has three images in it, one at the top, one at the bottom, and then
a tiled bg image. The tiled image sits fine in the background, but the
top image overlaps my text on IE.

The whole site works fine in Firefox and Safari on os 10.3 and 10.4. I
have also pasted the code in the window, oh and it also validates as
well.

Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance,
Mackenzie

-------CSS--------- ( those are the three divs I am having problems
with)

#div_image {
background: url('../img/middle.gif');
background-repeat:repeat-Y;
position: relative;
padding-bottom: -20px;
z-index: 2;
}

#content {
position: relative;
float: right;
padding-top: 2px;
padding-left: 5px;
padding-right: 5px;
width: 553px;
z-index: 3;
}

#leftnav {
width: 153px;
float: left;
position: relative;
z-index: 4;
}

------------ HTML -------------- ( i have put a note next to the image
causing problems)
