I actually read something about that and had forgotten all about it
because I had not encountered it. Thank you for reminding me.

I would guess it's the italic text on the testimony page. I was caught
by this same problem a week or so ago; apparently there is an IE bug
that makes IE think italic text takes up way more room that it really
does, so it knocks everything down below the float.
Someone sent me some links to references about it but I can't lay my
hands on them right now. But you might try googling "italic bug IE
float" or something similar.
