Ad Overlapping Text Problem

A few readers have brought it to my attention that the ad that should appear in the upper left hand portion of the post pages of this travelogue is overlapping the text.

I must admit that I truly have no idea what you are talking about. The ad displays properly for me in Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.

Could someone send me a screenshot?

The ad is placed there with a WordPress plugin called “All in one Adsense,” so this is not my coding error. I just upgraded the plug-in today, so maybe that could take care of the problem?

For people who are seeing problems, could you please tell me what browser you are using and what is happening? A screenshot would be better?

I am going into the Guatemala Jungle tomorrow, so will be out of touch. If you could send some feedback tonight, I will try to fix it.

This is what I am looking at

This is how the ad is appearing for me in Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer

Thanks,

Wade

Update

I just received a screenshot of the problem. This is what viewers using IE6 are getting.

Error of ad in IE6

Is anybody else having the pages display like this who are using a browser other than IE6?

If not, then I cannot say that this is much of a problem. The fact of the matter is that many, if not most, websites are no longer providing support for IE6. Even Google and Microsoft themselves are letting it go.

IE6 is dead, you should upgrade your browser.

It is truly difficult enough making the code of Vagabond Journey work properly in updated and supported versions of Chrome, Firefox, and IE8, so it is my impression that we will not be able to make things work for users of IE6.

For those of you who are webmasters, I am sure you understand. For those who aren’t, then please believe me when I tell you that it is really difficult to get your pages to display properly in recent, live, and supported browsers, let alone dead ones.

Please upgrade your browser.

Thanks to Nate for helping out with this.

Thanks to everyone else as well,

Wade
