First of all, it renders some of the links unusable. The middle
bottom one frequently (depends on the length of other links).

But what y'all need to realize is that that IE is the market
share browser. More folks will end up using it one time or another
to browse LFS than with other browsers.

To the average Joe, it simply looks like the LFS book is poorly
designed. Regardless that it isn't the book, but is in reality
a buggy browser, perception is everything.

Think twice before adding the XML declaration back in. What
exactly does it do for the book right now anyway?

Don't get me wrong, I really don't care which way you go. I
just have been developing web sites long enough to know what
folks say when it doesn't look right.

Regardless what the problem is.
