Surprise - IE 6 not behaving properly

Please take a look at:

cruz.amandadevries.com

And if possible, explain to me why IE is not putting the 'content' div
below the 'rightcol_image' div?

Thanks
Amanda

Even if it put it in the right place, and right size, IE6 would not support
PNG transparency.

Because IE6 is interpreting your invalid CSS "more correctly" than the
other browsers you have tried. A double }} is confusing the CSS
parser (there may be other problems, I did not check) correct that and
conforming browsers will take you at your word and put the image over
the text. What I get currently in Firefox is the browser ignoring
your class so the image pushes the following text down.

position: absolute is probably not what you want -- unless you make room
for it anyway, but then, why bother?

To have a good idea what various browsers might do, you should start
with valid HTML and CSS -- it makes life so much simpler!

Okay, my sincere apologies, I didn't notice the double }} before;
obviously I would have fixed that had I seen it!

Now do you have any idea why the image is over the text? I actually
want it to be below the image...

I need the absolute reference to keep the rightcol div on top -
otherwise, it appears after the leftcol stuff.

Thanks,
Amanda
