    Hey all,
    Apologies in advance for the "newbie" question – but I have built a CSS layout that works fine in Safari, FF, Opera…but when viewed in IE the top menu items and the background div are messed up. Being a beginner even to the semantics of CSS…all my research still has me completely stymied. I had used some of Chris’s suggestions and put the top horizontal navigation in as a ul#nav and wrapped the entire layout in a div#pagewrap. I am totally lost as to where I went wrong. So if anyone could give me a detailed clue designed for a newb…I would be eternally grateful!!!! Website addy is: http://www.celestapm.com

    Code:
    * {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }

    body {
    font-size: 62.5%;
    font-family: Verdana, helvetica, sans-serif;
    background: url(images/c_bg.jpg) repeat-x top #ffffff;
    }

    p {
    font-size: 1.4em;
    line-height: 1.3em;
    margin-bottom: 0.8em;
    }

    li {
    font-size: 1.3em;
    line-height: 1.2em;
    margin-bottom: 0.8em;
    }

    a { color: #336699; text-decoration: none; }
    a:hover, a:active { color: #000066; text-decoration: none; }

    h1 { font-size: 1.5em;
    margin-bottom: 0.8em;
    text-transform: capitalize;
    }

    h2 { font-size: 1.3em;
    text-transform: none;
    font-style: italic;
    font-weight: bold;
    color: #336699;
    margin-bottom: 0.8em;
    }

    h3 { font-size: 1.6em;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    font-style: oblique;
