Question IE Issue with Placement of Spry Menu

Browser compatibility check showed no issues.. But when I recently tried to view www.onlyfuzion.com/test_index.html with IE, the menu bar was skewed and off center.. Any suggestions on how to correct this issue rather than start a global campaign against IE?

Code:
/*******************************************************************************

 LAYOUT INFORMATION: describes box model, positioning, z-order

 *******************************************************************************/

/* The outermost container of the Menu Bar, an auto width box with no margin or padding */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal
{
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    cursor: default;
    width: auto;
    margin: 0px;
}
/* Set the active Menu Bar with this class, currently setting z-index to accomodate IE rendering bug: http://therealcrisp.xs4all.nl/meuk/IE-zindexbug.html */
ul.MenuBarActive
{
    z-index: 1000;
}
/* Menu item containers, position children relative to this container and are a fixed width */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal li
{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    position: relative;
    text-align: left;
    cursor: pointer;
    width: 150px;
    float: left;
}
/* Submenus should appear below their parent (top: 0) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul
{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    z-index: 1020;
    cursor: default;
    width: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    left: -1000em;
}
/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to auto so it comes onto the screen below its parent menu item */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
    left: auto;
}
/* Menu item containers are same fixed width as parent */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul li
{
    width: 100%;
}
/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul ul
{
    position: absolute;
    margin: -5% 0 0 95%;
}
/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to 0 so it comes onto the screen */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
    left: auto;
    top: 0;
}

/*******************************************************************************

Talking Switching from Spry menu bars to HTML/CSS

Ok.. So I've been working on this Spry menu bar since 8/22.. I figured I'd go a different route and make a simple menu bar with html and css. (I gave up)

For those figuring out that spry menu bars are a pain to work with in IE, I'd highly suggest trying the following instead.

1. Create the html in a div for an unordered list.

2. Create the external CSS and attach. Which means you simply highlight the main div id, and attach css.

For a tutorial check out http://www.dreamweavertutorial.co.uk...reamweaver.htm

As I'm new to Dreamweaver, I'd like to help out anyway I can. Hope someone working with Spry comes across this and decides to check it out.

Here's the result for me: http://www.onlytitan.com/why_titan.html

And I know why! HTML and CSS work just as well without the problems! (in my opinion)
