That is a difficult request, since we don’t know what you are doing in the templates that is breaking in IE6 . I would say stick with basic CSS and use jQuery because it handles cross-browser compatibility very well for DHTML and AJAX . Get a jQuery plugin for PNG transparency and you should be all set. For fine-tuning, use CSS browser sniffing (http://www.tvidesign.co.uk/blog/CSS-Browser-detection-using-jQuery-instead-of-hacks.aspx) to fine-tune CSS for different browsers.

Oops missed it. Wow you weren’t kidding! It loos extremely bad in IE6 . Maybe try using a CSS Framework. Here is a very light one : http://www.1kbgrid.com/ It’s similar to 960 GS but lighter and extremely useful. Not hard to use at all just takes a bit to understand it but that’s like all framworks. I know at first the sound of a framework can be unnecessary but at the end it saves you a ton of time. Hope that helps a bit. Did i mention it’s IE compatible :)

If you do not want to use a framework, my advice would be to always stick to valid and well written code. Also, it is always a good idea to test your theme even at early stages of the project.

In this particular theme, it seems that you should re-write some parts of the code.

Why we still use IE6 ? Why we still fixing our themes for IE6 ? I think it must die, it just give us a lot of problems. Maybe I wrong but this is my point of view.
