    Help with page in IE6

    Level 7
      Hi,
      First I apologise as this isnt really a DW question, as this site is built
      in Worpress, but I cant work it out myself, so was hoping some kind soul
      could point me in the right direction.

      I started off with a Wordpress template for a site, that I have been
      changing to suit what I wanted - Ive been using it as a learning experience
      to learn wordpress.

      The site is displaying fine in IE7 and Firefox, but in IE6, the far right
      column drops down to the next line. Ive scoured the code, but I cant see
      why its doing it.
      If anyone has any ideas, it would be much appreciated.

      The site is www.wakeupint.com
      Regards
      Fiona

          The paragraph around the flash file is making the its container <div>
          'sidebar1' too wide so now the three main <divs>, 'content','sidebar1
          and 2' wont fit into the 'main' <div>.

          Either delete the paragraph altogether or try reducing the left margin.


          <p style="border-top: 1px solid white; margin-left: 10px; padding-left:
          0pt;">
