    IE botching width

    http://www.samingle.com/dontemp.htm
    Is there anything specific that causes the dimensions to not stay proportional when resizing the font on this page in IE? Obviously it renders correctly in real browsers, but in IE the top nav grows from 50% the containers size to almost 100% depending on font size.

    IE 6, and I'm using EM's so it resizes with the font, and it stays perfectly propotional in firefox, but in IE the nav changes width at a greater rate than the container
