The current layout demands that the content area be flush left AND
flush right which didn't allow for differences in margins and padding.
In the proposed layout, besides changing the doctype , I have adjusted
it so the the content area can be either flush right OR flush left
allowing for differences in margins and paddings between browsers,
mostly by changing the background colors. This means I can get rid
of hacks and simplify the IE stylesheets.
Thank you for all your help and allowing me to see what the future
held for the current layout.
