IE issues on my site

Hello,
My site http://uk.expert.travel site looks nice on FF, but on IE looks
a bit broken and was hoping someone can give me hints to make it
passable on IE.
My main issue is the background image for the bottom left which sits
too high on IE and has a gray background.
Any advise, much appreciated.
Cheers
Norman

It would help if your code were valid. Neither your HTML nor your CSS is.

For IE6 and older it might help if the DOCTYPE line were on a single line.

Once you have fixed the above, it will be easier to deal with browser
differences.

?

Is there a reference that mentions anything about a single vs multi-line
DOCTYPE?

None that I ever heard of!

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

Just do not insert a line breaks within the quoted parameters.

Take care,

There are numerous references saying that the DOCTYPE should be on the
first line, but these references are mostly silent about the possibility
of the DOCTYPE spilling over to the second line. My recommendation was
perhaps due to a certain amount of paranoia about IE: I don't trust it
a lot, and would rather be strict about putting the DOCTYPE on one line
rather than trust that IE will never screw up if the DOCTYPE isn't.

I imagine they are silent because no issue has ever arisen. If there
were, you can bet some site would have documented it in gory detail. I
always put DOCTYPE on 2 lines and no version of IE has ever done
anything odd because of it.

Nor do I, but there's no need to make a WAG about pretend bugs. There
are plenty of real bugs to contend with.
