 Attached patch addresses various issues with the header in IE7.

 The patch fixes:

 * Navigation hover menu so child list items properly show up underneath
 the main list item on hover.
 * h1 and search menu so it displays
 * Horizontal scrollbar so it doesn't show up - see line 351 of the patch.
 Opera users still see the horizontal scrollbar regardless though.  For
 some alternative accessibility techniques, try the ones [technique listed

 The patch '''does not''' fix:
 * the right offset of the page. (This bug has existed since BP 1.2.) The
 problem has something to do with the `max-width` and `width` declarations
 on the `body` element.
 * aligning the #nav to the left.

 I've tested the patch on IE8, Firefox 12 and Chrome and it's non-
 destructive.  As mentioned above, Opera users will still see the
 horizontal scrollbar with or without the patch.

 With the patch applied, it will bring us pretty much on par with BP 1.2's
 RTL support.
