Ah! Well, at least I understand the question now. Can't explain it though.

My IE6 is part of a "virgin" XP install that hasn't been updated. That's not
as dangerous as it sounds - I only run it for testing, and then only in a
Parallels virtual session.

So maybe the page relies on some bug in early builds of IE6 that was fixed
in later releases. Other than that possibility, I have no idea what the
problem might be.

The only thing I can think of suggesting is to clean up the css, use
proper tags (<br> or <br /> instead of <BR>) and see if it works.
Otherwise, I'd look into restructuring your page to get rid of the
tables completely and use divs. Also, using FrontPage is one of the
worst things you can do to your site as far as W3C compliance goes, so
I would think about using something else.

Okay, so now it looks okay in IE6 for me, too. What did you do to fix
it? What was the problem?

Actually <BR> or <br> is proper for *html*, <br /> for *xhtml*

or P for paragraphs, H# for headings and UL for list...

We Word or Publisher has proven to be far worse, but just about any
"WYSIWYG" editor without careful tweaking produces subpar results.

I included <br> as a proper tag, and I concede that the rest are
technically valid. I just thought that all lowercase is simply the
generally accepted method...and all caps tags really annoy me, too. =P

Also, I know that <br /> is an xhtml thing, but there's no reason not to
use it, especially if the OP wants to make his site xhtml compatible in
the future with minimal effort.

Haha, I used Publisher back in 96-97 when I was inexperienced and didn't
know any better (I learned soon after the kinds of evil things it was
doing to my pages).

Only if the doctype is XHTML; it's invalid for HTML (or, technically
speaking, means something different; under the HTML standard, the
slash terminates the tag, leaving the right angle bracket as a plain
text character, though browsers don't actually interpret it that way
although the official standard says they should).

Wow, that is one radical difference! The main reason is you designed for
ie, not for standards-compliant browsers. As for specifics, I really don't
have time to recreate your page from scratch, but kudos on the marketing
line "Products at Kuliza are designed by gurus".

Maybe you should try to solve the HTML errors first,
http://validator.w3.org/check?verbos....kuliza.com%2F
and second
the CSS code
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
(this advice was given to me from this group after my first question
but it is very helpful )
