That is one of the variants here:
<http:/www.l-c-n.com/IE5tests/positioning/>

All that relative positioning and absolute positioning you use here....
Each r.p box creates its own stacking context, which is anyway layered 
on top of previous ones.
Then the anonymous box that wraps around a <a>, or text comes higher.

and there is a difference in handling things depending on the type of 
element: div vs. semantic tag like p, ul, ...

I usually avoid as much as possible the use of r.p. in IE Mac, as it is 
quite messy in IE.
