The site in question:


The site looks correct in Safari, FireFox and Chrome - IE the type is all screwed up?

Please let me know if I need to add lines of code and where.

    Looks quite bad in Firefox with increased text-size. 



    This is caused by your liberal use of position:absolute and explicit height values on containers.  For the web, this is a recipe for disaster.  It's much better if you don't use any positioning or height values.  Web pages must be flexible; not rigid.
