Don't have access to IE 6 right at this moment, but I assume part of your problems might be this in your page
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
While this is entirely correct, there is an IE 6 bug that makes it parse a STRICT doctype in "quirks"-mode if you place the <?xml?> declaration on the page.
Since the xml declaration is entirely optional you might as well leave it out to work around this IE/win 6 bug.
As long as you have the XML NameSpace in there as well as a meta tag for the charencoding you will be fine anyway
Thanks for that tip Stefan. Actually I took out my XML declaration and the application/xml+xhtml content-type as I was getting XML output instead of HTML, which I thought maybe due to that, but your tip is handy.

Are you talking to me? If so, no, I haven't changed anything yet and it does not look the same in IE 6 and Mozilla.
Stefan: You actually helped me with this (about taking advantage of IE CSS parsingbugs) in the old forum. I don't quite remember how it worked, so could you please tell me which value is read by which browser?

First you should remove that <xml> declaration as I said.
I've been playing around with this for a while now, and I noticed the following:
When removing the <xml> tag, in IE6, the big white div and the yellow bar below it (.innehall and .sidfot) jumped down below the left-hand menu. With the <xml> tag, it looked better -- not perfect, but at least the stuff was close to where I want it!
Another thing was...here's a piece of code by the way (it's the code for the top yellow bar):
