Let's see we have here an amalgam of upper and lower case elements, HTML
presentational attributes, a smattering of CSS, a liberal sprinkling of BR tags
to create white space, and uncontained blocks of text. I'm always surprised

The search box gets squashed in IE5.5 because you have:

is picking up 10px of padding from .contentmain, causing the problem. Try
The other problem in this column is the "Special Features" box which is
shifted to the right, not to surprising given the 20px margin-left found in the
