Really bizarre problem in IE

P: n/a
Please take a look at this page:
http://home.comcast.net/~delerious1/index5.html

It behaves as I expect in Mozilla and Opera, but there are two glaring
differences in IE (5.5):

1) The anchors go all the way across the page.

2) When you move the mouse over the lower anchors, the margins on the higher
anchors disappear!

I know that these two problems are caused by setting the height style on the
anchors. If I remove the height style, then the page in IE looks and behaves
just as it does in Mozilla and Opera. The question is: why would setting the
height style cause those two problems in IE?

In IE6, removing the spaces in between the anchors in the source solved the
second problem, even though it shouldn't have. I can't figure out why
setting the height causes the first problem, though expliciting setting the
width for the anchors works (note that setting the width to 100% makes them
wider).
