The problem is simply that IE does not recognise display: inline-table

Try inline-block BUT after it has been set to display:inline-block, you overwrite the rule with a second rule to display:inline - and it will do

NOTE:
In IE 6 and 7 inline-block works only on elements that have a natural display: inline
