Odd graphic or character appearing in mouseover of navigation

Mouseover the Family Fun button in the main navigation. There is a small line appearing towards the bottom-right of the button (see attached screenshot). I cannot tell what this is, or why it is appearing. Tried to use Firebug and other browser inspectors, but wasn't able to focus on that element.

Would appreciate any advice figuring out what that thing is, so I can remove it?

Thank you!

The line is is every one of your menu options except the last one. Which style sheet has the styles for that menu structure?
What changes were made to that styling between live and test versions?

That line is the background image applied by the following declaration.  Line 902 of style.css

.navigation li a {
	color: #50575E;
	padding: 15px 18px 35px 18px;
	text-align: center;
	font-family: "Open Sans";
	font-size: 12px;
	font-weight: 500;
	background-image: url(assets/img/navigation_divider.png);
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
	background-position: center left;
	display: block;
	transition: all 0.3s;
	-webkit-transition: all 0.3s; /* Safari */
	*text-transform: uppercase;
}

Seems to be font-related. If you change
body{font-family: franklin_gothic_fsMdCn;}

to
body{font-family: Arial;}

the line disappears.
