I’m sorry if the new external link icons that I’ve added don’t work correctly for you. They work fine in Firefox. The problem happens if the link they are attached to gets wrapped to a new line. IE decides to put the image at the end of the first line, rather than at the end of the div which is wrapped into the next line.
Eventually they will get their shit to be compliant with the standards. In the meantime, I’m willing to let it stay ugly for those few occassions.
