    I'm helping someone with a web site, attempting a CSS menu.

    When viewing this site with IE (IE6.0, not sure about IE7.0),
    as you move the mouse over the menu items, the text starts
    to overlap each other, but not always.

    The Holly Hack is part of the CSS and is required to make the
    box sizes the same as FF (Mozilla). But there is still a problem
    with the overlapping text and I can't seem to get it.

    Here's the URL:

    I tried various font sizes, and even tried doing it without
    the Holly Hack ... to no avail.

    I finally figured out this problem.
    It was the images used as the backgrounds.
    They were too wide, so it messed up the width
    of the box. I realized they should be slivers that
    needed to be repeated.

    I should have looked closer at the tutorial where I
    got the script from ... a lesson to be learned.

    I was going to delete this post, but I'll leave it in for
    others who might want to read about the Holly Hack:
