IE6 layout drop problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I have an intranet page which will be used by IE users only, primarily
IE6 users.

The problem is with the two column layout I have is that if there's a
wide element in the main content of the page which is wider than the
size of the window, the wide content drops to the bottom of the page.
Can anyone assist with a simple way to overcome this? Thanks in

You should not be posting such a lot of code, url is the way to
go. And as for multi posting, you better look up why this is
frowned upon.

As for your problem, start by looking at this:
