IE: Top and Bottom of border not showing

Hello,

I'm having a problem where a style for a <a> tag
isn't working in IE:

border : 1px solid red;

If you use my code below, you'll see what I mean.
In IE6 on WinXP, I'm not seeing a red top and
bottom border. My HTML validates. It looks
exactly like I want it to in Firefox and Opera.

I recommend pasting my text into a file and then
viewing it to easily see what's going on.

Thanks.

Hello in my CSS section #post-footer I added the line border-bottom: 1px solid #d0d0d0; but the bottom line doesn't show up up. I think the code is correct because the exactly same code works fine a another CSS section (eg #footer).

Hello, I have a blog with link information at the bottom of each article. I just added a text-to-speech link from Talkr where you can "Listen to this article."

The feed does validate with two warnings generated by server side HTML .

Hello fellow authoring.stylesheets colleagues, Can someone please explain why the bottom margin of the last inflow block-level child in an overflowed parent should not have its margin reachable.
