    Can't get the UL & LI elements aligned correctly in IE6/IE7

    This site shows a page outline that I have been working on.

    I had the menu fully functional with dropdowns (FF) but it wasn't looking right in IE. Then someone told me to do an image for the background and now I can't get the LI elements to stay within the UL box.

    If you look at FF and then IE6/IE7, you will see what I mean.

    I have changed the LI to yellow backgrounds to show what is happening but for some reason, IE is *pushing* the LI elements over to the right. Almost as if there was a left-margin.

    Can anyone please help me figure out why this is happening?

    Here is my CSS:
    Code:
    body {
       background: url(../images/pattern-grey.gif) repeat;
       font-size: 85%;
       font-family: "Myriad Pro", Verdana, "Bitstream Vera Sans";
       color: #484848;
       padding: 15px 0 0 0;
       margin: 0;
    }
    
    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p {
       margin: 0 0 1em 0;
       padding: 0;
    }
    
    h1, .contentheading { font-size: 1.4em; }
    h2 { font-size: 1.3em; }
    h3, .contentpagetitle-b******** { font-size: 1.2em; font-weight: bold; }
    h4 { font-size: 1.1em; }
    h5 { font-size: 1.0em; }
    h6 { font-size: 0.9em; }
    
    a:link, a:active {
       color: #007468;
       text-decoration: underline;
    }
    
    a:visited, a:hover {
       color: #ff6f00;
       text-decoration: underline;
    }
    #container {
       width: 980px;

       margin: 0 auto;
    }

    when you hover over the menu option the new options are suppose to come up underneath?

    Sorry for the delay in responding... I'm suppose to get updated when a new post is made, but I wasn't

    I think the hover should be working now, and I think the layout should be working. If people can take a look and let me know, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!
