My experience is that mozilla implements better CSS than the others, an IE is 
the worst. So far I have not seen any property that runs in IE and it does 
not in mozilla.  I think that the problem with left menu is that you have 
specified in your style page as:

#menuesq {
 float: left;
 width: 180px;
 background-image: url('img/bg_menuesq.gif');
 border-right: 1px solid #C1C7D0 }

And the following is what it appears in the definition about the claculation 
of the height of block elements:

10.6.6 Floating, non-replaced elements

If 'margin-top', or 'margin-bottom' are 'auto', their used value is 0. If 
'height' is 'auto', the height depends on the element's descendants....
