Yes, I did. I have FireFox on Mac OSX. All the Moz browsers do that. It 
seems to work OK in IE - most flavors and Safari. However, on IE Mac 
the nav div hugs the left side of the window instead of aligning to the 
right as the logo image does. I may go with images/javascript for this 
one. I know that will work without the fuss and I can keep going on 
this on the side. Unfortunately, this sort of tire spinning happens 
when using CSS for the more complex things and I find myself falling 
back (or at least it feels like it) on the tried and true (or maybe its 
tired and old - but it works, easily).
