problems with height in horizontal list in IE

P: n/a
I'm having problems getting the height to compress for a horizontal
list in IE (styled with CSS). It works fine in other browsers.

Does anyone know a way to fix this?

A quick glance reveals "min-height: 26px;" on your <ul> css. AFAIR, IE
isn't smart enough to recognize min-height and min-width. Maybe by IE8
or 9...

Not quickly, no. I don't really want to troubleshoot your js file.

A better question would be why your navigation is only available to
about 90% of your visitors. The rest will have JavaScript turned off.
Put your menu in an include file, rather than js.

I don't expect you to solve any javascript problems. I don't like the
javascript either, but that is what they decided to do and I'm stuck
with it.

Here is a plain jane list without the javascript:

It does the same thing.

The problem of the height I believe is a IE problem - complicated here
because of the images and input box.

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them.

You may have missed the point. The problem is that about 10% of your
visitors will have JavaScript *disabled* or otherwise unavailable
(stripped by corporate firewall, for example), and will not even *see*
your menu.

Is that what "they" want?

Who are these people and why are they dictating that you must serve a
menu with JavaScript? My clients don't know scheisse from shinola
about how the pages are produced.
