li elements disappearing in IE6

    I am running osx leopard, with parallels and and old version of xp. When testing this site in xp with Internet Explorer 6 on my system, if the page is resized, the menu bar beneath the header disappears.
    The menu is animated with jQuery, which leads me to believe this is a javascript issue…. or, it might be my setup causing problems.

    If anyone could try it out in IE6 i would very much appreciate it! Thanks.

    I launched you page in IE6 and the navigation definitely disappears when the browser resize effects the width of the window (it doesn’t do it if you only change the height).

    Some Drupal developers had a similar issue with their sidebar disappearing in IE6 and they were able to fix it. I saved off your source and added the following CSS:

    Code:
    #header_container {
    _zoom: 1;
    }

    This seems to fix the problem (although I don’t know what it does). Here’s the post from the Drupal forum: http://drupal.org/node/220551 (look at comment #3).

    Hope that helps. If you see any hot-linking requests in your server logs, that’s me; I hot-linked all your stuff to test that change.
