I now have a better inkling of the problem. The span is given a
border, but IE places borders on the OUTSIDE of spans, rather
This span is directly under an image, so part of its top border
gets rendered beneath the bottom edge of the image, and so the
border is clipped.
I don't think IE is actually violating the specs in this case,
altho I could be wrong. Text variations are very common between
browsers, and IIRC, the W3C is not too specific in this area.
A good fix is to provide a 'spacer' between the image and the
span. The spacer element is left without a background, so the
span top border can be seen thru it.
A div with an ' ' and 'line-height: 3px' seems to work nicely.
