Default Lost float left in IE & quickly losing my mind

I sure hope someone can help! This home page has a right column that floats left in all browsers but Internet Explorer (imagine that!). I swear it was working before, this web site has been up for several months. But now its throwing the right column UNDER the left column. What's going on? Please help!!!! http://colosewingpros.org/

the "search" box is pushing the width of the sidebar.

IE still treats width as min-width

Chris (or anyone): Thanks, I don't understand min-width. Could you tell me what I need to do to fix the problem? More specific please? I removed the search box to see if that made a difference and it doesn't. Do I set a min-width for my .aside or #secondary or #content?

you might want to now close the "header" div AND correct the closing tag <div/> below "container"

Chris, sorry if I appear dense, but I have poured over my source code and can't see that the header div is not closed and even used my search for <div/> and can't find that either. I used Firefox web tools to validate and its not turning up those either. What am I missing?

I'll have to apologise

the IE developer tool (F12) was showing those problems and I did not check the source.
I won't be making that error again.

Thanks all, I found my solution here: Float Drop - floated elements drop below their expected position. http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/communi...81&productId=1
