Your stylesheet is added to the document with JavaScript conditionally 
upon which browser is being used (using unreliable User Agent string 
parsing).

I suggest that you:

1: Remove the comments from above your Doctype so that you don't trigger 
Quirks mode in IE6

2: Replace the JavaScript with conditional comments - 
http://reference.sitepoint.com/css/conditionalcomments

3: Have one stylesheet which is served to all browsers and second 
stylesheets for IE6/IE7 to override areas where they have problems on a 
case by case basis (instead of maintaining two entirely different 
stylesheets).
