    Horizontal Nav Bar Staggering in IE

    I used a horizontal navigation made up of 4 images linking to the other pages in the site; all four images are side-by-side comprising a horizontal navigation. The site was functioning/rendering correctly in Firefox and IE8, but the buttons are staggering in IE 7 (and likely in previous versions).

    I've scoured the net for a few fixes to no avail. I would appreciate any wisdom.

    Here is the HTML:

    <a href="contact.html"><img src="Images/contact.jpg" width="200" height="40" alt="Contact Button"/></a></li>
    <a href="affiliations.html"><img src="Images/affiliations2.jpg" width="200" height="40" alt="Affiliations button" /></a>
    <a href="aboutkaren.html"><img src="Images/aboutKaren.jpg" width="200" height="40" alt="About Karen Button" /></a>
    <li><a href="index.html"><img src="Images/homebutton.jpg" width="200" height="40" alt="Home button" /></a></li>


    And here is the related CSS:

    div#navbar {
    position: relative;
    margin: 0 auto;
    height: 40px;
    z-index: 100;
    border: 1pt solid;
    border-color: rgb(153, 102, 51);
    background-color: rgb(254, 250, 235);

    ol {
    list-style-type: none;
    width: 100%;
    overflow: hidden;

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

    I think there must be a bit more to your css as that isn't going to give you a horizontal menu. Also, it might be better to use an unordered list <ul> rather than an ordered list <ol> - as your list isn't ordered.

    Re your staggering problem, give it a try by adding:

    #navbar ol li {display:inline}
    If this doesn't fix the problem, please post your entire code.
