Some of this wont make sense because it is affecting the other pages that i didnt link, but basically the thing is, this works fine in IE, but the menu1 div is inside of my contentwrap div in Chrome, i don't know why this is happening. Can anyone help me out?

I brought it your code up in Chrome and played around with it a little bit.

You can see what I did here

It looks like there's a:

float: left; 

in under your css rules for

ul#list-nav 

I commented that out.

Just in case: if you wanted the elements inside it to float left try applying the rule to those. If you wanted it to overlap the wrapper try setting a z-index or applying the wrapper to float left as well.

Thanks much and Good Luck!
