ARG ... do I missunderstand CSS1

Can I ask for a bit of help?  I thought I would work some more in CSS1
and I decided to revamp the CSS1 I used on my servers main page...  I
moved all the STYLE= stuff to the STYLE block using classes... however,
MSIE no longer displays any style past the first H1 H2 H3 H4 H5 H6

Any suggestions for how I can improve the page, specifically the "news
flash's" CSS1 arrangement...  Is it just something I am doing wrong? between 4pm and midnight CDT (GMT -0500)
