Pixel shift on hover


This problem is occuring in two separate areas of my page in IE6 only.
But to keep things simple, I've just made a test page up with one of them.
When you roll over the links the whole thing shifts, and then when you roll over the button it shifts back again.

I guess this is something to do with IE not liking hovers and zoom:1, but I have put that in a separate IEFixes.css file.  No luck though.  Not sure if it's relevant but I also have a hover behaviour attached to the body class.

Please help!

Strangely enough, deleting "cursor:hand;"  from
    a:hover {text-decoration:none; cursor:hand;  }
and also deleting "background-color: #FFF !important;" from
    a.button:hover {display:block; width:135px;  [...other styles here ...]  background-color: #FFF !important;  }
in the file main.css seems to help.
But I had to test without all background-images, so this might be wrong.
Both, the cursor and the bg color setting, seem to be redundand (BTW, you should use "cursor:pointer" instead of "cursor:hand;" - it wouldn't help in this case, but it's the crossbrowser way to do it).

Also, do not use html comments inside css files!
(Delete these in the css files:  <!--  -->  )

also, instead of
 html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { margin: 0;  padding: 0;  border: 0;  outline: 0;}
you could really say
* { margin: 0;  padding: 0;  border: 0;  outline: 0;}       -   the star means "all" in this  context...

Well how strange.  You're right, it does sort it out.
How on earth can a bgcolor make a difference???
So I can't have cursor:hand then?  They were quite keen on it.

The comment tags were included by default by Dreamweaver when I created the css page, are you sure they need to come out?  Thought it was some browser thing, I suppose for those which don't recognise CSS?

But anyway - thank you, it works and you're a life-saver.  It's been driving me up the wall!
