Comment (by r-a-y):

 > Seems like the root of the problem is display: inline-block on #nav li,
 which IE7 doesn't know what to do with. It's possible that we could work
 around this with some browser hacks in our existing stylesheet (see eg
 http://grasshopperpebbles.com/css/css-inline-block-ie7-hack/), or with a
 conditionally loaded < IE7 stylesheet. Both of these options are icky in
 themselves, of course, but is it worth considering the trade-offs?

 That's correct.  Though the browser hacks create problems for the tabs and
 dropdown menus when you hover hover them.


 My approach uses absolute positioning because I'm using `float` in `#nav
 li`.  A potential workaround in my patch instead of setting the height is
 adding a `clear` div before closing the `#navigation` div.
