Hi folks,

Just wanted to let you know, the WAI home page doesn't render properly in IE7 -- there's a gap above the main heading.

I copied the WAI site style to create the current SKOS web site http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos and found the same problem. I just fixed it by removing the following from the main CSS file...

*>#main {			/* Hide from WinIE6 */
    width: 73%;			/* Redundant, but necessary for MacIE5 */

... I guess this isn't hidden from WinIE7, which is why the heading gets pushed down?

I guess the current SKOS page won't now render properly in MacIE5 now, but I figured it was better to favour WinIE7. Any further advice you could provide on knock-on effects or dependencies would be very welcome.
