The width you had added to #content triggered 'haslayout'  in IE6, contributing to the problem
you were having. There were probably other ways to ultimately fix the problem, but what I suggested
may reduce other potential problems as well.
Now, if that solution wasn't what you expected, neither will the next one be expected. The issue
you're seeing in IE6 with the expanded content on -
http://sph.umd.edu/events/wellness2/about_acupuncture.html - is the result of a bug due to the
content you have emphasized (em element) .
One solution you can try, that should fix things up is to add a small negative margin on the right
side of your content. I didn't check this on other pages, only the acupuncture one, so you'll need
to test it out.
Change the declarations in your content selector, again -
padding : 10px 15px 60px 0;
margin-right: -3px; /* add this */
and you should see the space disappear.
