I hit an IE (at least v6) CSS bug. Anyone interested can try the changeset  
and click call followed by save, it should show a validation error. The  
workaround is to add a line to #kalseyTabs so that it becomes


.kalsey .navigation-content {
	background : #fff;
	border : 1px solid #ccc;
	border-top : none;
	clear : both;
	margin : 0px;
	padding : 15px;
	line-height: 1.1;  /* IE6 CSS workaround -  
http://www.dracos.co.uk/web/css/ie6floatbug/ */

The bug and workaround is described in  
http://www.dracos.co.uk/web/css/ie6floatbug/ (thanks to Matthew  
Somerville?). I chose 1.1 arbitarily. Naturally, adding line-height will  
make the page look slightly different, so if anyone has a better value or  
fix, please suggest, thanks.
