    why don’t you fix it with internet explorer class, this is what i do

    everything that has ie will only apply to ie, like:

    .ie header {
    /* Only Applied To IE */

    A bit too many class’ going on for me to really give a solid answer, but it looks like you might be setting the navigation div that holds all the list items to a width of 140px.

    #pages li{float:left; font-size:1.2em;font-weight:normal;list-style-type:none; width:140px; margin-left:15px;text-transform:uppercase; margin-top:20px}

    ^^the above is an instance where this might be the case. I understand that it to make the width of each li 140px and not the list itself though.

    My suggestion is to put the navigations links in a div/span w.e that is the width of your page (roughly 700px) so that IE won’t shove the list off to the right. It looks like they are in a container at the moment that is forced to the right because it is set to float but has no pre-determined width.

    You didn’t specify on which version(s) of Internet Explorer it looks bad, and also not what part(s) look bad. You’ll have to be a little more specific.

    I’m guessing that you mean the top menu on IE7. This is because you give #top a height of 100px. Either remove that, or increase it to 180px.

    It’s a float issue.

    “London Evening Standard/ British Airways” drops to two lines and forces “girlguiding UK” to get stuck on the right of it. Either reduce the font size to make a single line or force all of your divs to be the same height.

    it looks like you have some conflicting css files. Custom.css and custom.css in two locations. Reason?

    its one file, but strangely shows two time in firebug

    and chrome and IE.

    But there is one version on the root of your www and another in your theme folder.

    “my site looks bad on Internet explorer”

    That’s basically the definition of IE around here, sadly.
