you should post a link or your code so we have a chance to look at it directly and help you.
And I would recommend to have the code checked for errors with this HTML Tidy, http://flumpcakes.co.uk/css/html-tidy/ . One can enter URLs or HTML code directly.
Not that IE isn't a crappy browser, but code errors are very easily found by Tidy. And generally, the errors are quite serious, in contrast to many of them found by the W3C validator.

The key to understanding how Internet Explore screws up involves just a small hand full of things.
1) It might be an explicit bug.
2) It might be due to hasLayout, or a lack thereof
3) It might be a white space issue in your HTML source, and IE reading your source code as a dinosaur-like 4.0 browser.
