    It's IE. The effect you're seeing is the infamous peek-a-boo bug.
    On your page it's there because the <br class="clearleft;" /> is
    touching the floated image. If you change this bit:

    iuer liuh lidfuh iniu gbnliuh dfliudh erdfbbnv iou ehbvefiyug
    <br class="clearleft" />
    link to page with thumbnails of work and maybe a longer profile of
    human
    </p>

    to this:

    iuer liuh lidfuh iniu gbnliuh dfliudh erdfbbnv iou ehbvefiyug
    </p>
    <br><br class="clearleft" />
    <p>
    link to page with thumbnails of work and maybe a longer profile of
    human
    </p>

    ....the effect is gone.

    You are giving a 'clear' to a BR in the middle of the block element P?
    Try (I am using the class names to illustrate function in example)

    <div class="outer">
    <!-- 1st group -->
    <div class="inner">
    <img class="floatleft">
    assoc text
    </div>
    <div class="clearer">
    text below
    </div>
    <!-- 2nd group -->
    <div class="inner">
    <img class="floatleft">
    assoc text
    </div>
    <div class="clearer">
    text below
    </div>
    </div>

    Take care,
