Actually,  it's broken ONLY in IE6.  7 and 8 are fine.
As to why...  IE6 has broken css interpretation.  Specifically, it's got a
non-standard way of dealing with the box model and the -12 in the following
css is pusing the december out.

edit that line and you should be good to go.  It won't look the SAME in 6 as
in 7 or 8 or Firefox or Chrome or Safari... but it will WORK.

Or, you could research the ways to do version-specific css... (ick ick ick

.ec3_list (line 121){

margin-left: -12px;

word-spacing: -1px;

letter-spacing: -0.2px;

color: #880000;
