View Full Version : Resolved CSS navigation bar in IE ...Helps!

05-29-2009, 01:04 AM
I decided to change my navigation bar to straight CSS to clean it up. I'm on Mac and it looks fine in FF and Safari, but i just knew there would be problems when it went to IE for Windows. The layout of the site name and the thin line goes quacky!

I'm a bit knew to the margins and width/height in CSS, so any help would be great.
