i stumbled onto an MSIE 6.0 rendering bug that was just kicking my butt. finally, i delved into the css-discuss archives and found it. and it's a doozy! justin patrin has documented the bug along with several fixes on a page at his site. below is the bug in a nutshell:

This rendering bug in Internet Explorer 6.0 causes text in a div with a background color followed by a div which floats to the left and another which is clear on the left to be invisible. ... All styling on the text is also invisible (such as background colors and text colors).

there are several other details that add up to cause this rendering problem. it's all pretty messy. i'm really hating IE 6 right now...
