Spry MenuBar F. Fox fine, IE Explorer displays off

Hello Friends,
I am having an issue with my Horizontal SpryMenubar.
In Firefox all seems fine. However when I load my website in IE Explorer, a black bar, (same length as my Spry Menubar) appears below the actual Menubar. It almost seems like it is part of the Menubar and but is pushed down out of position.
I have included my CSS and a screen shot to illustrate the issue.
If anyone can shed some light on this I would be very grateful hearing from you. Many thanks in advance for your assistance!

/* HACK FOR IE: to make sure the sub menus show above form controls, we underlay each submenu with an iframe */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal iframe

    z-index: 1010;
/* HACK FOR IE: to stabilize appearance of menu items; the slash in float is to keep IE 5.0 from parsing */

Hi,
The following code will give you a nice black line as you described:
ul.MenuBarHorizontal
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    cursor: default;
    width: 600px;
    margin:auto;
    background-color: #000000;
My advice, keep the original CSS and create a myStyles.css which is loaded after the Spry CSS. myStyles.css will then contain your mods. This makes it much easier to keep track of when something goes wrong.
Hope this helps,
Ben
