I believe MS thinks it is a feature, but since it violates the
standards MS has promised to obey, it's just that; a violation.

What is happening here is that #masthead has a 'height', which throws
IE into a proprietary float related behavior. Learn about it here:
It's really sad that Opera has decided to copy this violation
of the standards, with their Op7 version. I guess they figured
no one would notice. They figured wrong.
Rob, you need to avoid using 'height' or 'width' on any element
that contacts a float, thanks to this foolishness. Sorry.
