Yes it has height: 146px; which matches the height of the background 
image.  Turns out that #topnav had nothing to do with it.  IE has a bug 
where floated elements with negative margins get content-clipped[0]. 
The solution is to add position: relative to those elements.  No effect 
in FF/Opera/Safari, IE 6 is happy.

Thanks for the reply.
