I noted that the contentRight div has a height of 500px on it. The first
paragraph fits within that 500 and so its staying in...after the text
exceeds to bottom of the right div, it spills out...so you need to work
on that rightDiv I think.

what do you mean by conditional comments? It seems to me, that css
hacks are not really a good thing since they are called hacks. The
language should just work regardless of browser or computer. I think
thats what standards are for aren't they? So that the language is
standard for everyone??
away... it's a nice option to have, just stop making IE
so inconsistent with other browsers.
I'll probably be using conditional comments for the next five years,
and everytime I use them I think to myself, this would just be easier
if IE worked the same as FF/Opera/Safari.

Well, I think the answer is a yes and no.

It does read a couple of meta tags like the 'revisit' meta tag and a

According to 'Designing with web standards' by Jeffrey Zeldman keywords
are used to size up and down the users specified size. It doesn't matter
what size or how they choose their size -- in CSS, 'medium', will always
be what they users specified size is set to and then scaled up or down
I don't believe you can stop the inheritance. You should try using the
keywords which are relative to the users font-size setting. Xx-small
x-small small etc... Otherwise you might can try mixing and matching
