[WSG] Strange width/padding/margin issue with IE5 for Mac

For some strange reason, the only way I can get this block of text to behave in Mac IE is by putting a block element at the top of it! i.e. I can tame its width by sticking an h5 title on the top. In the block of text, everything before a list stretched and ignored my instructions. But, after a

Right, I've now got the pages looking IDENTICAL in FF on MAC and Windows XP with NO HACKS!! Will now try to tidy it up a little, still with no hacks. Clearing the floats was the very useful advice, and nesting one of the floats too. The rest, I just started from scratch.

http://www.janelehrer.co.uk/live5/ In IE, when the window is shrunk, the content block drops underneath the logo image (ugly). Why does that happen when, in FF, it stays in position and compresses nicely? Also, in IE, there are gaps between the border images. Again, in FF, a nice smooth line.
