Three-Column layout, Center Column empty IE 6,7,8

Three-Column layout, Center Column empty IE 6,7,8

Can any CSS guru give me an idea of what is going on at this url:
www.embodydancesantafe.org
I am using a three-column layout from CSS Sculptor for the home page and the rest of the site is a 2-column layout from the same extension. Everything looks great on Firefox and Safari but in any version of IE 6,7,8 the only thing visible are the graphics; the text is missing. I tried placing a clear break at the end of the content div and setting a definite width for the center column based on things I read in this forum, but no luck. I am tearing my hair out on this one!
Thanks!

when i view your page in ie8 i see the following Javascript error:

Message: HTML Parsing Error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917)
Line: 0
Char: 0
Code: 0
URI: embodydancesantafe.org/

It looks like you have some errors with the javascript functions applied to the page, I think the javascript errors are preventing the main content form displaying.

Jason, thanks for looking. The rest of the site, which does not have the sliding panels, and is using the 2-column layout, gives the same visual result in IE. I'll try pulling out various script elements and see if I can narrow it down. Do you get the same error on the sub-page (any page beyond home is a 2-column layout)? I will start pulling out the javascript elements and see if I can find the error.

Hi, apparently the error I was getting is rampant as a search for the error returns multiple hits. The fix for me was to move an SWFobject script that writes to a div, replacing a line of holding text with a Flash music player, outside the closing <body> tag at the end of the page. Apparently IE won't write to a child div without the parent being closed, something Safari and Firefox do without blinking. I am adding this tech info in case others encounter this error since it is a common way that Flash is written to a page. I am using SWFobject 1.5 and do not know if 2.0 addresses this browser-specific issue since the site is live and I couldn't spend time experimenting.
