IE margin problem

P: n/a
I thought my problem might have been related to the 3px IE bug, but none of
the fixes worked. Does anyone have any suggestions to get rid of the small
space between the menu and the grey border line on the left (only in IE)?

Here's the page in question (this is just a test site):

Thanks!

It is related. The fix you use for the 3px bug actually causes the
problem you're seeing.

It's caused by the
* html #ContentBodyRight { height: 1%;}
style. Get rid of that and the space closes up, but the 3px text jog
is back.

So it's one bug or the other.

I don't think there's a simple fix. One possible solution is this:
as you're using a fixed with content area (naughty) you can scrap the
border altogeher and use a background image to place the vertical line
200px into the content area. It's a hack but it's the simplest
solution that avoids making drastic changes to your HTML and CSS.
