Problem with closing pull quote in IE.

I'm having problems in IE with a pull quote method I found on the web. The problem is, if the quote is more than 2 lines, the closing quote will disappear in IE. Everything remains ok in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Just not in IE.

I have pasted the page below. Or you can see it here: http://greddin.com/pullquotes.html.

The first quote should look ok, but the second longer quote will not display the closing quote. Can anyone help me modify my code to fix this?

Thank you,
-Greg

Why not just use something like this?

<style type="text/css">
blockquote {

	text-align: left;
	background: url(quotes2.png) no-repeat bottom right;
	padding: 2px 15px 2px 2px;
}

blockquote:first-letter {
	background: url(quotes1.png) no-repeat left top;
	padding: 10px 2px 10px 25px;
}
