At first glance that seems like an IE bug and I'll file it so that we can begin investigating it. With that noted (and I'll start a new thread if we conclude that it isn't an IE bug) I would love to get to the bottom of the interop issue regarding the horizontal placement of the black box. Any additional thoughts, or is there agreement that the horizontal positioning should begin at the center of the viewport?
