Jquery Accordion issues on IE

Hello,
I have used the jquery UI to build a simple accordion for the Tools on this page: http://www.africanhealthleadership.org/resources/toolkit/

Everything works fine on Firefox, but things are weird on IE7.  When someone clicks on one of the accordion elements, the line/arrow above the previously clicked accordion element disappears.  

The line/arrow will reappear on mouseover, but something seems to be overwriting the stylesheet information.

Also on IE, I am getting unwanted scrollbars on the first item (Preparation) after a user clicks on a different part of the accordion.  

I have tried all sorts of ideas but with no luck.

Thank you for any help!

Please check and correct the errors in your page as it's more than possible that's what is causing your problems:

Thanks Tagit, I resolved the big ones that applied to the accordion. I will clear up the others before launch, but the problem still persists and I don't suspect that it is tied to those unresolved items.  Any ideas are appreciated, thank you.

I'm just looking at your code in your main page and all your javascript comments only have 1 slash.  This will definitely be causing unpredictable results.  I would suggest testing with Firefox and download an add-on called Firebug.  it shows you all js and dom errors

eg


                  ); / end hover
            }); / end each
      }); / end ready()

I verified code, markup is wrong.
p should be children of li not ul
view below code.
 









<ul class="tools">

Thanks Tagit and Wasim. I was able to solve by removing the clears and setting overflow to auto on the parent div.  I will go and clean up the validation errors now, thank you for your help.

Why a B? I was the goof who put the malfunctioning code in there in the first place, no A for me.
