It's the text "Financial/Funding." When the text size is large, this
text overflows the column in good browsers and expands the column in IE.
When IE expands the column, it can no longer sit up at the top because
there is not enough room there.
This is a common problem with IE with many workarounds, but no
quick-fix. I don't like the idea of applying overflow-x to just cut the
extra content off. If someone has her text size set so large that the
content overflows, she wants to see that overflowed content, and
shouldn't be denied it because she needs large text sizes.
Instead, try adding "margin-left: -50px;" to #maincontent. Seems to work
fine here in IE6 without hurting FF. Will need to be tested in other
