<h1>Modern Celebrity Portraiture</h1>
<p>I am a professional photographer specializing in the the fine art of modern 
celebrity photography. Not much different than classical traditional celebrity studio portraiture,modern celebrity photography dispenses with the tedious,lengthy,and often boring, sittings that the traditional way required of the model. These days,celebrities can  pose in a more relaxed setting,whether at home,location,or the photographer's indoor or outdoor studio. And contrary to formal tradition,now the celebrity can dress as they like,and with their children,and/or favorite pets.
Any celebrity will be able to choose the style of photography and/or video clip he/she wants to be showcased on this Modern Celebrity Portraiture page. Attention celebrity reps,you can contact me at: Mauricio Jordan Photography <a href="http://www.geocities.com/mauroj2/contact.html">contact.</a>
<br />Portfolio available upon request
<br />
<br clear="all">
<h1>Celebrity Weekly Photos</h1>
A particular celebrity will be showcased on this space for one month only.
I will favor celebrities who do charity work to help the poor around the world.
The photo gallery of each celebrity will be displayed according to the celebrities who agree to pose for this weekly gallery-not an easy task,as celebrities and their management,usually decline to be posted online,for the obvious reasons,but I will try to photograph a different celebrity per week.-
And the celebrity can choose their settings (outdoor/indoor)and casual/formal attires.
<br />
<br clear="all">
<h1>Celebrity Interviews</h1>
This space will be dedicated to some celebrities interviews,to talk about the charity or philanthropic work they do,and depending on the kindness of random celebrities to give me a bit of their busy lives to share their ideas and reactions to this style of Modern Celebrity portraiture. I hope their inputs will inspire other photographers to star a new era of Modern Celebrity Portraiture.</p> 
<i>P.S. Whenever possible,a video interview will be available to be seen on the video player (above right)or some highlights sort of behind-the-scenes clips of the progress of the actual photo sessions.</i> I extend my gratitude to everyone of the celebrities,and their managements,who were kind enough to participate in this Modern Celebrity portraiture project. Thanks to all,and to you the visitor for visiting this site. <br /><br />

Not knowing exactly what "looks bad" means, I can't try to give any specific advice, but I'd suggest you try specifying the widths & heights of your elements (like your divs), if haven't already. In my experience, IE6 has been slightly better if given more specific rules for displaying the page, like widths & heights in px, etc. If necessary, I'd also add in some javascript so the extra restrictions only apply to IE6.

Hope this helps (:

First, I want to say that there's no such attribute as "clear", especially not for a <br>-tag. Remove those! :)

Second, you should try to indent your code since it will become a lot easier to read your code if you do, example:
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Test</title>
	</head>
	<body>
		<p>
			some content comes here...
		</p>
	</body>
</html>


Third, try to validate your HTML and see if you get any errors, if you do get errors then that might be your problem:
W3C HTML Validation Link (I get this response from your code, "63 Errors, 32 warning(s)"...)

Fourth, you should also validate your CSS because of the same issues:
W3C CSS Validation Link

Fifth, at the top of your code you have this:
<html>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

remove the <html> part of that...


Hope it helps! :)
