viewing source of page, i see that there is a meta tag before the doctype:

<meta name="keywords" content="Cat surgery
Dog surgery, Emergency vet,Pocket pets,Veterinary dentistry,Declaw,Dog spay,Cat spay,Dog neuter,Cat neuter,Grooming,Pet grooming
Dog grooming,Pet orthopedic surgery,Dog orthopedic surgery,Pot bellied pigs,Laparoscopic spays,Dog dentist,Cat dentist,Pet x-rays
Animal hospital,Vet hospital, Animal Hospital near Lorain County, Animal Hospital near Amherst, Animal Hospital near Elyria
Animal Hospital near Oberlin, Animal Hospital near Lorain, Animal Hospital near South Amherst, Animal Hospital near Wakeman
Animal Hospital near Grafton, Animal Hospital near LaGrange, Animal Hospital near Wellington, Animal Hospital near Vermilion
" />
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

this is forcing IE to use Quirks Mode rendering. In Quirks Mode, IE uses the IE5.5 rendering engine which has limited support for CSS.

the doctype tag must the first tag on the page in order for IE to render the page correctly.

Meta tags belong in the head of an HTML page. move the meta tag so that it comes after the <head> tag.

Works now

Ok, works, kind of weird since I created the pages off a template, and the template has the doctype as the first line, going to have to go and correct the other pages, but at least its working for the home page now.
