CSS and Nice Menus in Drupal Messed Up in IE of course

I cannot get the main menu on this site to behave in IE9:
http://www.biennainternational.com/
I am using conditional style sheets, and I am finding the correct divs with Firebug and the Chrome equivalent of Firebog and I can't find where the background color is bleeding out beyond the border of the menu on the right side and below it. This is probably because it is perfect in Chrome and Firefox, so I can't right click on it and find where it is being set.
I have been banging my head against the wall on this all day.

There is a tool in firefox that is web developer
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-developer/
In it's tool menu you can validate your code and see the errors in html. You can also validate css.

I only see it overflowing on the right side. I think it is because you have your li width set at 14% and the width of the ul is 920px. You end up with a ul that is wider than the sum of its items. Try setting your ul to 768px and your li to 128px.

Arrow_1 - thank you so much! I have wasted hours banging away at this with no results.
I did figure out the overflow below, it was a padding issue.
Now my problem is centering the menu. Every time I add a margin or padding, it moves the slideshow above it, arrgghhh. And nothing I have tried moves it more to the right.
I don't get why this affects the element above it.
I think by now I have all kinds of extraneous CSS in various files...
If this is a new question, please let me know and I will make it a new question!
