Oke, i did some browser checking and spend a good part of the day
fixing it for ie.
I had to change divs a bit to fix bugs in ie 6 and lower (higher then 4)..

Take a look here:

Tested under the following browsers:
(100% OK) IE 5
(100% OK) IE 5.5
(100% OK) IE 6
(100% OK) IE 7
(100% OK) IE 8 beta
(100% OK) FF 3
(100% OK) Opera 9.5
(100% OK) Konqueror (kde 4.1)
(100% OK) Epiphany

All show the layout the same now with some painfully hours of tweaking.
The layout is coming along quite nicely now and the outer frame for
the fedora project sites is now about done. The menu still had to be
done to look like the mockups but that's about it for the overall
frame. After that it's time for jQuery to enter the layout with it's
fancy effects.

Some other interesting info:
XHTML 1.1 Valid:
CSS is also valid (level 2.1)

I actually COULD!! have make it work under IE 4 as well but decided to
leave it out because IE 4 isn't supporting conditional statements thus
i needed to use javascript (or php/python/whatever language fedora
uses for the web stuff) to find out the browser version and load the
css that belongs to it. That seemed a bit to extreme for me. I'm more
then happy with the results so far.

That's it for today with that website.
