Hi thelahera

This may be caused by many things but as you have a very small amount of content on your page I can only assume that it is a conflicting code. Errors like this usually are more pronounce in IE

In IE 6 I see your page askew with the left and right sides of the content cut off. Additionally, the movie player is non functional.

What I would do is:

1) Temporarily remove the movie player and update your site then see if the problem persists. (Save the code)

If that does not work

2) It could be the code you are using to produce the border around your content. Try removing the code and then update to view in IE 6 (Save the old codes)

Let us know if those don't work for you...

Good luck and happy site building...

First of all backward compatibility is important but IE8 is round the corner and people know if you use an old browser stuffs going to look funny - i wouldnt waste to much time on it.
what i noticed is - i need a plug in for Firefox?
My laptop works on every site i need it to and there is no way im installing a plugin without knowing what it is or what its for.
A thought for you to keep in mind. Lee.

PS where did you get the code for the youtube downloader?
