repost: some random IE problems with this site

please take a look at:

shannon.amandadevries.com

1. why is 'container' not being centred in IE? i have a site that is
very similar to this in terms of it CSS, which is correctly centred...

2. why does the content in 'content' repeat itself after the
copyrightblock in IE?

Thanks,
Amanda

Your DOCTYPE triggers quirks mode, so it is open to buggy, broken
rendering in all browsers, not just IE. Switch to HTML 4.01 Strict and
validate your HTML and CSS if you want more predictable and consistent
results.

Even with valid code, IE has issues:

What did? If you mean the standards mode doctype, Ben C already gave you
that in reply to your original post. Was that all it was? Do you mean
correcting validation errors fixed things, or reading the PIE article is
what did it?
