After struggling with modifying/personalizing the Techozoic theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Themes/Theme_Compatibility/2.3) and thinking that I'd glitched the mark-up, I just checked the theme creator's side and it verified a niggling suspicion that I'd developed.
This theme is NOT cross-browser compatible - its got quite an ugly issue with IE 7

I wasn't sure where else to put this...I've left comment on the creator's blog, but thought that since he boasts over 1000 downloads, I should share this info in case someone else spends a weekend fretting and trying to correct an error that they think they've made, but that exists within the actual source code.
