Compliant CSS + HTML that displays incorrectly

P: n/a
I'm ready to tear my hair out.

I've been writing http://www.villagefabrics.co.uk over the past couple of
weeks, and I cannot get index.html to display correctly in IE 6 - it seems
to work in IE 5.something. The code I have used validates using
http://www.w3.org validators.

I'd be grateful for any advice you can give me on fixing this.

(I know the other pages aren't right either - but my concern now is that
front page)

Many thanks,

Karen

What do you think is wrong with the way IE6 renders your page? If I
visit it with IE6 or with NS7 it looks okay to me.

Please don't.

That page does work. As Jon pointed out, there's other fish still to fry on
the other pages.

What exactly is wrong? The navigation area looks rather tall in IE6. Try
eliminating the top and bottom margins and padding from li. And since IE is
weird with percent widths set .ul to maybe 13em. Try it.

Looks OK in Opera 7 too, only the blue on red menu is difficult to read.
