I'm trying to make this page work with Internet Explorer:(It works fine with Mozilla Firefox, but IE hides my navigation <DIV>.)

The CSS file used by the page:

/*** Three-column layout code from [url="http://www.alistapart.com/articles/holygrail"]http://www.alistapart.com/articles/holygrail[/url] with modifications ***//*** The Essential Code ***/body {  margin: 0;  padding-left: 200px;    /* LC fullwidth */  padding-right: 190px;   /* RC fullwidth + CC padding */  min-width: 240px;       /* LC fullwidth + CC padding */}#header, #footer {  margin-left: -200px;    /* LC fullwidth */  margin-right: -190px;   /* RC fullwidth + CC padding */}.column {  position: relative;  float: left;}#article {  padding: 0 20px;  width: 100%;}#navigation {  width: 180px;           /* LC width */  padding: 0 10px;        /* LC padding */  right: 240px;           /* LC fullwidth + CC padding */  margin-left: -100%;}#news {  width: 130px;           /* RC width */  padding: 0 10px;        /* RC padding */  margin-right: -100%;}#footer {  clear: both;}/*** IE Fix ***/* html #left {  left: 150px;            /* RC fullwidth */}/*** Code snippet end ***/body {  background: #CBD6C9;  font-family: Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;  font-size: 0.85em;  text-align: center;}a {color:#3366FF; text-decoration:none; border-bottom:1px dotted #3366FF;}a:visited {color:#CC33FF; text-decoration:none; border-bottom:1px dotted #CC33FF;}a:hover, a:active {color:#FF6600; text-decoration:none;border-bottom:1px dotted #FF6600;}.wrapper {  background: URL("skin_swirl_green_top.gif") no-repeat top left;  background-color: #DDE4DB;  width: 718px;  margin: auto;  padding-right: 20px;  padding-left: 20px;}#header {  padding-top: 64px;}h1 {  font-size: 3em;  font-style: italic;  color: #5F7559;}h2 {font-weight: normal;font-size: 1.5em;font-style: italic;color: #96A892;}#footer {border-top: 1px solid #96A892;font-size: small;}#article {text-align: justify;}
