All browsers are in quirks mode, as no DTD is recognized where it is
now. That's the result of the broken source-code mentioned by Ron.

The entire fixed-width page is quite a bit narrower in IE6 than in other
browsers, so the #HomeFlash div doesn't fit - causing the drop.

You may try to keep it working by adding...

#HomeFlash {margin-right: -50px;}

....but you should really fix that source-code so decent browsers at
least stand a chance, and don't have to work overtime trying to recover
your page from total disaster.
