    this is caused byt the fact that IE6 handles CSS VERY!! badly, IE7 is better but still not perfect, Mozilla is alomst there.

    consequently the more standards compliant a browser is the more it can make some web pages look a bit wacky.

    try these as a few pointers
    W3C CSS Validator results for http://www2.chathamsouth.medway.sch.uk/ (CSS level 2.1)

    [Invalid] Markup Validation of http://www2.chathamsouth.medway.sch.uk/ - W3C Markup Validator

    not too sure what the HTML validator is on, perhaps the CMS template needs tweaking.

    without seeing the code that causes the output i cant be much more help

    A good start would be to float the #content-container div left by changing the CSS file:

    #content-container {
    color:#4A4537;
    font-family:"Tahoma",Verdana,"Tahoma",Verdana,Arial,Hel vetica,Sans-Serif;
    font-size:1em;
    font-size-adjust:none;
    font-style:normal;
    font-variant:normal;
    font-weight:normal;
    line-height:normal;
    float: left;
    }

    It's not perfect but it helps in FF.
