CSS Positioning problem in IE6

I'm having a problem with the positioning of a div block in IE6.

http://www.uah.edu/Athletics/index.shtml

When the window is resized to a width smaller than the width of the
"body" div (that is, the main content of the page), that content jumps
downward. The content displays properly in Mozilla Firebird 0.6,
creating the necessary horizontal scrollbar.

I spent a couple of hours looking at the past few months of posts to
see if this was asked/answered, but didn't see it.

The relevant stylesheet can be found at

http://www.uah.edu/Athletics/style.css

Many thanks for your help.

In recent versions of Mozilla it's very messed up.

To be honest there's so much javascript, inline css and pixel-
positioning that it's very difficult to work out what's going on. I'd do
you a new version, but none of my browsers display the page in any
rational way, so I don't even know how you want it to look. Maybe if
you post a screenshot?

Call it style.css in the code, not style.txt.

I'm testing in the newest version of Firebird, d/led yesterday.

I took your advice and posted some screenshots:

IE working: http://webpages.uah.edu/~andersms/css/IEnormal.gif
IE broken: http://webpages.uah.edu/~andersms/css/IEbroken.gif
Mozilla working: http://webpages.uah.edu/~andersms/css/Mozillanormal.gif
Mozilla resized as IE is when it breaks:

The link is contained in a head file that is #included in:
link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="http://www.uah.edu/Athletics/style.css"

If something changes, it's as it's uploaded, which shouldn't happen.

Thanks for your help.
