HTML problem - run your HTML through the validation service http://validator.w3.org/check

...Looks like you've got an ampersand that's not encoded, try replacing:

News & Promotions

with

News & Promotions

...Not sure why this would cause the whole menu to not display in IE, but it's really the only problem I notice.

Regards,

Jesse

I'm on to something...

If I delete this entry - it shows up in IE -but a bit wonky - so now I have to figure it out.

ul#navlist
{
margin-left: 0;
padding-left: 0;
white-space: nowrap;
}

I figured it out..

I had to set the margins/padding for ul#navlist.

I also had to z-index 1 to #navcontainer since it overlaps with the content below.

#navcontainer {
      position: absolute;
      left: 302px;
      top: 144px;
      height: 30px;
      width: 600px;
      z-index: 1;
}

ul#navlist
{
      margin-left: 0;
      padding-left: 0;
      margin-top: 3px;
      margin-bottom: 3px;
      padding-top: 3px;
      padding-bottom: 3px;
}
