Default Spry Menu Bar Vertical - IE 8 & 9

I've got a problem with IE 8 & 9 (and also probably 7 & 6) using a Spry Menu Bar Vertical. I've identified that when I take out "background-color" from "ul.MenuBarVertical a":
ul.MenuBarVertical a
	display: block;
	cursor: pointer;
	background-color: #EEE;
	padding: 0.5em 0.75em;
	color: #333;
	text-decoration: none;
and take out "background-color" from:
/* HACK FOR IE: to make sure the sub menus show above form controls, we underlay each submenu with an iframe */
ul.MenuBarVertical iframe
	position: absolute;
	z-index: 1010;
/* HACK FOR IE: to stabilize appearance of menu items; the slash in float is to keep IE 5.0 from parsing */
@media screen, projection
	ul.MenuBarVertical li.MenuBarItemIE
		display: inline;
		f\loat: left;
		background: #FFF;
Internet Explorer shows a white box with 'false' in the corner on all submenus. I'm at wits end. I don't want a background color on the menu bar. Is this possible in IE? I tried just deleting the hack for IE (I don't care about people below IE 7), but that didn't work either.

Can't you use transparent for the background color property?
If my answer helped, check out DWcourse.com for Dreamweaver tips and tutorials.
