Hi Allison,
(That was quite a year ago, when we talked about the B. News site. :-)  )
I didn't remark this question before, but probably you have seen the 
POOF! thread in the meantime:

    * POOF! start here
      <http://archivist.incutio.com/viewlist/css-discuss/85416>

    * and the updated workaround here
      <http://home.tiscali.nl/developerscorner/css-discuss/test-link-iconENupdate.htm>

Success and greetings!
francky

btw:
As you can see in the right column halfway down in the Dutch version 
<http://home.tiscali.nl/developerscorner/nederdev/test-link-icon6.htm>,
IE is normally placing the icons somewhere in the vertical middle of the 
amount of lines which the link is taking...

- In Wikipedia is is going wrong in IE too, but mostly you don't see it 
because the links are only 1 or 2 words, and the probability of breaking 
in 2 lines is not so big then.
- Example of things going wrong in IE is also the small link column in:
