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.
