    Hey all,

    I figured out a workaround for the CSS selector problem in my last thread, but now there's a new one. The navigation at this site:

    ...doesn't display properly in IE. As you can see, the tabs don't line up the way they're supposed to. Here is the code used to style the navigation:

    #navigation ul {
        list-style: none;
        display: inline;
        float: left;
        clear: both;
        height: 27px;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
    #navigation li {
        display: inline;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
    #navigation li a {
        outline-width: 0;
        overflow: hidden; 
        display: block;
        float: left;
        height: 27px;
        text-indent: -5000px; 
        background-position: left top;
        background-repeat: no-repeat;
    #navigation ul .page-item-3 a {
        width: 85px;
        background-image: url(./images/navTabHome.gif);
    /* Snip many more background image styles */
    This code was adapted from other Wordpress sites that use graphical navigation, namely and, and those sites display fine in IE. Does anyone know what's causing IE to mess up the way it does with this page? Thanks.

    I don't see anything right off the bat but the -5000px text-indent value looks suspicious
