Hey guys- I have a question, maybe someone can help me. Please go to
I created the interactive main story navigation. It looks great in Firefox, but in IE the top nav options ( Latest News, Sports, Business ) start to descend. Any ideas why this is happening? Am I missing something small? Please help me out!!

I know, I didn't design this site, I just came into this position so I am working with what I have. I have asked several people and they say they do not see the problem either.

No, 'any' tag will not trigger 'quirks' in IE7/8, however most tags will, the problem with the xml declaration is corrected or at least fudged over so that it doesn't trip IE into quirks mode, which is stated in the paragraph following on in the wiki entry
It's a bit of an outdated wiki page in it's reference to the soon to be released IE7
