    Dreamweaver Vertical Spry Menu Problem in IE7

    Khephera Level 1
      I just finished setting up a vertical, 3-level spry menu in Dreamweaver CS3, and when I preview it in IE7, several pixels have been added in between the buttons, which spreads the menu out and looks terrible. The problem disappears after I clear the ActiveX warning, and it doesn't occur in FF. Could someone please tell me how to fix this??

      Here's my SpryMenuBarVertical.css file:
