Well, I think I solved my problem. I did a couple of things. First I made
the text and letter spacing a bit smaller to reduce the length of the menu
line. Then I fudged the size of the #nav, increasing it just a bit more
than the size of the menu. While this offset the menu (so, technically, it
isn't smack-dab in the center, but just off center by a few pixels), it
allowed the menu to stay on one line. Unless you're really looking for the
centering, the viewer won't notice it.
Of course, it's not a perfect solution (often, what is?). But it's a
decent compromise to get it looking right in IE and other major browsers.
Thanks, David for your help.
