Without the search bar, both IE7 and FF display the 'Menu' (horizontal line of links) at the same height, where it can be adjusted against the background image bar. The 'Menu' appears right after the 'Gsearchbar' which attempts to put a rein on the bar.

Adding the Google search bar and IE7 drops the 'Menu ul' alone out of sight.

Code:
.container{
border:1px solid #999999;
width:92%;
margin-top: 0;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}

#header {
background-image:  url(imagebar.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: left top;
text-decoration: none;
width:100%;
height:150px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}

.Gsearchbar {
float:right;
width:400px;
height:125px;
padding:10px 10px;

}

.Menu ul {
        position:relative;
        width:95%;
        list-style:none;
        padding:75px 0 0 0;
        margin: 0 auto;
    }

.Menu ul li {
        display:inline;
        list-style:none;
        padding:0px 0 0 0;
    }
.Menu ul li a {
vertical-align: middle; color:#FFFFFF; text-decoration: none;  padding-left: 15px; padding-right: 15px; font-size: 13px; font-weight: 600; text-transform: capitalize; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    }
.Menu ul li a:hover {
vertical-align: middle; color:#FFFFFF;text-decoration: underline;  padding-left: 15px; padding-right: 15px; font-size: 13px; font-weight: 600; text-transform: capitalize; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    }
Declared as:
Code:
<div class="Mmenu"><ul>
    <li><a href="addressdothtm1">link</a></li>
     <li><a href="addressdothtm2">link2</a></li>        
     <li><a href="addressdothtm3">link3</a></li> 
     <li><a href="addressdothtm4">link4</a></li>  
<li><a href="addressdothtm4">link4</a></li></ul></div>
Have tried, which I though would limit the prior div's
Code:
position: relative;
overflow: hidden;
Please note, will be adding another line of links right below this main one, an ' SMenu' (submenu)

Also, chose to name as 'Menu ul' since '#header ul' would apparantly cause IE7 to split my background image in half, duplicating the upper half. Quirky.

Would appreciate suggestions.
