    Just two points on your code - optgroup is giving trouble and you've defined id="top" twice.
    And apart from saying that on IE at 800*600 (or any size) I can't actually read any of the text because it's so small - it's OK on Firebird - if you're referring to the link graphic, it may be down to lines like
    Code:
    font:bold 0.8em/1.2em verdana, sans-serif;
    but elsewhere you have
    Code:
    font:bold 0.9em/10px arial, serif;
    a kind of mix in thinking.

    You also have
    Code:
    font:0.7em/0.5em arial, serif;
    which should give almost overlapping interline spacing - do you really want this? And getting down to
    Code:
    font:bold 0.6em/1.4em verdana, sans-serif;
    will be so small as to be nearly illegible under normal circumstances.

    I've fiddled with your css using HTML-Kit and got better results by setting the
    Code:
    font:1.0em/1.0em arial, serif;
    from the html, body tag to be somewhat larger. This is not a definitive answer, but as I can't read what is supposed to be happening in IE it's the best I can give.

    Did you mean the text in IE to be this small?

    Well, the text size is kay with me and I have set my IE auto font size to medium (which most use). I will change around the font sizes though and tell you if there is any improvement..

    Also in Firebird wenn I adjust the font sizes with Ctrl + ++ and -- the searchform does overflow. Anyway to prevent that ? I have a right margin cast on it of 10px and also it's width 95%, but it still does overflow. I managed the drop down boxes to stay, even if the font size gets incredibly big. Ideas ?
