IE 6 rendering issues - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Hi all: Any advice you could offer would be very much appreciated. I have just posted a site which renders beautifully in IE7. Safari and Firefox - however, in IE6 there are NUMEROUS issues. I could do a redesign - since up to now I had tried to avoid compliance with IE6 but I would of course like to avoid that. Link is provided below in case you all may be able to give me some tips as to how I can fix what I have so IE6 plays nice. Thanks again! www.ducksroofing.com K....

    You should validate your CSS and XHTML by W3 validator at W3 site.

    Did you try? No.

    The CSS validates. The HTML has a few trivial errors that wouldn't affect
    the layout. Please Please Please stop doing this.

    Could this have anything to do with your issues?

    HI Murray:

    Your first reply has be stumped...were you speaking to me when you said
    "please stop doing this?" :)

    As for your second question, no that CSS file reference is not the culprit - I
    tried a few tweaks under a new CSS file for safety and I just need to remove
    the reference to that file. The issues pre existed that file.

    I have fixed some of the issues but still am having two issues:

    1) The page height does not scroll completely in IE6 but does so in all other
    browsers. That is, the page is cut off either 1/2 or 1/3 before the bottom of
    the container in IE6.

    2) My SPRY elements, as I have mentioned in a separate post, don't want to
    play nice in IE6.

    Thanks for taking a look - any ideas anyone else has would be very
    appreciated. Thanks.

    No, it was for the 'drive-by spammer' yupieyi. His empty, 6 word replies to
    every post are worthless. Just so you wouldn't get confused, I included his
    post in my reply. I can see it didn't work. 8(
     

    I'll have to go back and look again....

    I'm not crazy about the motion I see in the top menu when I rollover the
    About Us, Residential, or Contact Us button. I'm also not happy with your
    use of the antique NavBar element for that menu, which adds oodles of code
    with no benefit over simple image swaps. If it were me, I'd get rid of it
    AND the table it came in on, and use an unordered list styled appropriately
    for that top menu.

    I believe your IE6 problems stem from your curious use of the
    position:relative style. There is no need to use any positioning on this
    layout at all. Just use non-positioned containers, stacked one on top of the
    next, to build your page from the top down. It should work out fine.

    Murray:

    Thanks for your help. Old habits die hard and I am using the old nav bar
    method and I know I need to come into the 21st century and use CSS for my menu.
    :) That said, I am altering the page with that change in mind as well as
    removing all of the relative positioning.

    The reason for that positioning to begin with was I was having issues with the
    SPRY tabbed panels popping out of doent flow due to what I can only guess is
    a floating issue. I think this is also why IE6 was not viewing the entire page
    even though I could get other browsers to see the relative positioning and view
    the entire page by tricking them via relative positioning. In short: my
    container element is not wrapping around the SPRY tabbed panel element and
    therefore the browser only sees as far down as the container goes - cutting off
    the tabbed panels. I don't know why since when viewed in code view, the SPRY
    element is within the container.

    I have posted a new page to demonstrate and would appreciate your continued
    expertise. Thanks!
