Incorrect alignment of text in div - IE5.2 Mac only

This site (http://www.boatingaccessories.com.au...roup/index.asp)
renders ok in
most browsers I've checked, except for IE5.2 Mac, where the most of the main
content text is
placed well to the right of where it should be and overlaps the right
border.

Appreciate suggestions as to what may be the cause of this issue and ideas
to resolve it.

Also apologies for reposting, but I'm at a dead end for ideas on this one.

Thanks
David

It's not surprising MacIE has difficulties. Your positioning is a bit
convoluted. Plus, a number of browsers have quirks with relatively
positioned elements, not just MacIE. I suggest you simplify the
stylesheet and get rid of all the relative positioning.

Don't re-invent the wheel if you don't have to. There are lots of
2-column templates out there, here's a list to get you started:
