Ah.  That worked, and because it worked now I realize it was the negative
margin on the #navigation element, triggering some obscure IE rendering bug
that is fixed in IE7.  Re: your earlier sensible suggestion, I put the
background on the wrapper div instead of on body because the background
image is just wide enough for 1024px width display; it was a kludgy attempt
to make a nice transition for wider displays.  Been encountering a lot more
people lately who view web pages in maximized windows on 1440 or 1600px
width display.

Thanks Mark!
