Can anyone tell me why the menu bar at http://www.d16acbl.org/ works beautifully with Firefox, but with IE 7.0:

1. The background of each submenu item doesn't block out underlying text,
2. The submenu for meeting minutes wraps, and
3. The third level menu for individual meeting minutes wraps?

It's pretty much the standard css file from Spry, made to have auto width items as described here: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/spry/samples/menubar/AutoWidthVerticalMenuBarSample.html .

Help would be appreciated.

I attached the css file.

Thanks
