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 5 or 6?
Maybe you should try a % width
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
get rid of the item that uses width
Or the other one: just don't worry about it!
the problem is, it breaks the layout, so i kinda have to worry about it... if i resize to lardge the buttons jump down onto the next line... I know this does work in IE based on this
