I cannot get my buttons to display as anything but as a block. Any idea why this won't display as an inline element? Thanks!
#buttonAccounting, #buttonFood, #buttonEquipment, #buttonGalley, #buttonCabinSys,

#buttonPassenger, #buttonDisability, #buttonCoats, #buttonIFE, #buttonConnectingInfo

{

	display:inline;

	height: 175px;

	width: 175px;

}
 

#buttonAccounting

{

	background: url(../images/e4button_money_regular.png) no-repeat;

}
 

#buttonAccounting:active

{

	background: url(../images/e4button_money_pressed.png) no-repeat;

}
 

/************************************************** HTML ****************************************************/
 

<a href="pages/accounting.aspx" id="buttonAccounting" onmousedown="javascript:PageMethods.downClick(5, 0);" onmouseup="javascript:PageMethods.upClick(5, 0);"></a>

It's inline for me.  I don't think I did anything particular to it...
<html>

<head>

<style>
 

#buttonAccounting, #buttonFood, #buttonEquipment, #buttonGalley, #buttonCabinSys,

#buttonPassenger, #buttonDisability, #buttonCoats, #buttonIFE, #buttonConnectingInfo

{

	display:inline;

	height: 175px;

	width: 175px;

    border: 1px solid #333;

}

 

#buttonAccounting

{

	background: url(EE_Badge.gif) no-repeat;

}

 

#buttonAccounting:active

{

	background: url(EE_Badge.gif) no-repeat;

}
 

</style>

</head>

<body>
 

<p> this is my 

<a href="pages/accounting.aspx" id="buttonAccounting" onmousedown="javascript:PageMethods.downClick(5, 0);" onmouseup="javascript:PageMethods.upClick(5, 0);">my link</a> button inline </p>
 

</body>

</html>

In quirks mode, IE wrongly applies the width and height properties to inline elements.
