Odd one. Did you notice that IE doesn't apply any background properties, 
for example background-color, to that H3? Anyway, I don't know what causes 
it, but the hasLayout tricks seem to work. I tried 'position: relative' and 
a height and both fixed it.
BTW, the closing curly brace in the very last rule is missing.
