Zoom Bug in IE7

Last week I wrote in Bug in IE7? that I thought there was a problem viewing this site:

In Firefox and IE6, my horizontal list (menu) works correctly. The picture below shows the “Link Blog” item highlighted and mouse-over.

Looks good

In IE7, all of the text is crowded together, but the mouse-over regions are in the correct place. Again, the picture below shows in the “Link Blog” item highlighted. Noticed that the highlight is in the same place, but the text is all crowded to the left.

Looks bad

This alone looks like a bug. I don’t see how the text and the highlight can be in two different locations.

It turns out that this is related to the zoom feature.  This site looks fine if zoom isn’t used (i.e., at 100%).  More or less zoom crowds just the text, but not the mouse-overs.

Must be a bug.

try the css-property “zoom” with value “1” or “100%”. it was helpful for me…

Thanks, I’ll try it out. I am about to replace my whole template and I don’t think it is a problem in the new one, but I’ll see.

Thanks again,
