Positioning problems in IE6

Are there any positioning gurus out there that can help me?

My website works fine in IE7, Firefox 2.0.0.8, and Opera 9.24.
Unfortunately, it breaks in IE6. Here is the URL: http://sfl.london.on.ca.

I have done a lot of experimenting but nothing I do to really makes IE6 work
satisfactorily. My experiments also break the newer browsers. I'm out of
ideas at this point.

Any ideas anyone? I don't think I'm doing anything especially unusual or
exotic so I have to believe there are solutions for my situation: I just
can't think of anything else to try.

Just a quick update to let you (and posterity) know that I got everything
working now in all 4 browsers. In the process of trying your suggestions, I
stumbled on an answer that seems to work quite well. (Still a few small
glitches in IE6 and IE7 but no show stoppers.)

I changed #index-col to say "position: relative" and commented out "float:
left". I changed #content-col to say "position: absolute". That's it;
nothing else was required!

I'm not sure WHY this works but I can live with that for now. I'll figure
out all the whys and wherefores eventually ;-)
