Replace it with:
<div id="header">
            <div id="navigation">
                  <script type="text/javascript" src="/common/menu/apy_menu_main.js.cfm">
          <div id="connect">  
          <img src="globalimages/facebook-logo-square.gif" width="25" height="25" />
          <img src="globalimages/twitter.gif" width="25" height="25" />

Because IE8 by default makes them 1x1

when using xhtml doctype be sure to close your img tags with a forward slash like SSupreme did.

Just so you'll know, when you put [ width="" height="" ], IE converts that to [ width="0" height="0" ].  You can see it in IE Developer Tools.  And 0 means no image cause there's no pixels.

Actually, empty value by default equal to "1" in IE8, in other browsers by default equal to native dimension of image.
