I don't know where your problem exactly is.
But you may use navigator to detect browser.
If it is IE7 then show a notice that the website doesn't support IE7 and tell them to change.

Good luck!

It looks like IE7 doesn't like that "div.navigation" is absolutely positioned outside of its parent. I recommend you use left padding on "div.rotator" instead of a left margin and then adjust the value of the left property for its descendants as needed.

You were right about the being positioned outside the container. Once I move all into the main container it worked in IE7, but I had to completely change the CSS for IE7. Navigation had to be relatively positioned.

Thanks
