Julie replies:
Thanks so much for the advice, everyone! In the end, I added a space
after the slash in Financial/Funding, and it fixed things up. Adding a
  still caused the problem, but a regular space in the code
seemed to do the trick. I'll keep the &#173 in mind (for very special
occasions, of course) if I need something to break up one word on
another page.

In terms of why the sidebar push-down was occuring on all of our pages
for only some of our PCs running IE6 for WindowsXP, this is a question
for the ages. It was fixed, as I said, by the negative 3px margins
suggested by Ingo, but I still don't understand the variation between
PCs using the exact same version of IE6. The word "voodoo" does sound
appropriate.

Thanks again!
Julie
