Hm... Indeed... Weird. I haven't noticed that Wiki

at least doesn't change much in horizontal positions of elements (only
the search bar seems to be affected).
The site might be in IE7 compatibility mode, but it still should use
correct box widths.
Still, using CSS for positioning is always risky
unless an element to be
positioned is anchored inside an element over which you want to position it.
More precisely, absolute positioning is only a good idea if a) you
know for sure which element will act as the anchor, and b) really want
a fixed offset from the borders of that element without regard to any
other elements that may be present. Neither one of those two seems to
be the case here, so absolute positioning doesn't seem ideal.
