I just noticed a very odd difference about my website between browsers.

I created my website while active on the Mozilla browser.  I thought my site was looking pretty decent.  Then I went to my website using the Internet Explorer browser and was shocked.  The site is terribly off from what I see using Mozilla.  All of the boxes are exteremely wide an you have to use the scroll bar to see the full page when using IE.  Does this happen with all users?  Is there something I have to change on setting from my control panel?  I am very concerned that people not using Mozilla are actually seeing a very distorted view of my guild site...not good for recruitment purposes.

The site is:

Please help!

Hi Immortum!

I don't know who made your Custom Content Box HTML, but wow... it really needs to be fixed. Funny thing though is it isn't causing the trouble you're having.

I can't tell you how long I took trying to figure out why IE was messing up the page. I was about to tear my eyes out when I found it. I can't tell if you added it manually or if it's from the Site Style for Content Boxes, but get rid of the drop shadow! This line in the CSS needs to be removed (the main problem is the part in red):
.ContentBox { margin-bottom: 5px; border: solid 1px #d1cccc;  filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropshadow(OffX=2, OffY=2, Color='black', Positive='true'); -moz-box-shadow: 2px 2px black; -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #000;}
If you didn't add it manually, try going to Control Panel > Site Style > Content Boxes > Border > Border Drop Shadows (Uncheck this!).... but I tried turning this on and it didn't cause the same problem on one of my test sites. So I don't really know if that was the problem. I looked, but it's late, and I couldn't find any where else in the Site Style where it had an option for a drop shadow.

Anyway, here is your Custom Content Box HTML cleaned up a little (Control Panel > Custom Code > Content Boxes: Left Side, Center, Right Side)
<table class="ContentBox" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
  <td class="ContentBoxTitle">$block[title]</td>
  <td class="ContentBoxBody">$block[content]</td>
