In IE6, I am not seeing what I would call a "giant white box" in the
above sample page.
I do see two issues.
1) The png images are not displayed properly. This is a common problem
with IE6. There are known methods for handling png in IE6. Me, I'm a
coward. I just use gif and jpg.
2) There is a 10 px margin between the light brown background content
box and the darker brown border like line.
For me, given my attitude about folks still using IE 6 in the light of
current hyper-security risks, I would just pretend that I wanted the
10px margin at the bottom of the page. And let the IE6 users have a
slightly different viewer experience. If this is a job for a client
try browbeating them into upgrading to IE8 <grin>.
Given the ultra weirdness of Wordpress/Addon css handling. I would try
saving the document onto your hard-drive using something like the
Firefox save complete document.
Then you can edit the page removing stuff bit by bit until you isolate
the problem without the extra complexity of potential cross
interactions between different style sheets.
If your "giant white box" is a different effect than I am seeing in my
particular IE6, perhaps you could point to an image displaying the
