ie 6 rendering problem with revolver

I fixed all the problems I had with jmaki widgets and multple pages, except one, and it's driving me nuts. The revolver is such a great widget, and I really want to use it.

I need to allow ie6 ie7 and firefox as targets, and predictably one doesn't work.
When the dynamic "div" elements are rendered for the title and the buttons, in ie6 they do not show the button icons correctly.
I changed the css code to render these div's as outined, and I can see two problems in ie 6.
No icons in button div-s
Title div overwrites the button div's obscuring the pointer for most of the actual layout of the button.

I can fix the overlaying by changing the z-order in the css, but nothing I have tried will render the buttons in the button div's except adding dynamic "A" and "IMG"
and this renders the button foreground.

I'm no expert on css or html, but I don't know why it won't render the icons.

Any clues or suggestion welcome.

The 1.8.0 netbeans install & extras zip worked a treat!

thanks guys!

the new stuff looks pretty good too.

Hopefully now my in-tray's a little lighter I'll get going on this.

Thanks for the help.

I've been doing some extensive re-writes to the revolver recently and wanted to know.

Which version of the revolver are you using?

Could you reverify with this and I'll double check too.

Thank you,

Sorry it took so long to get back. I'm a bit busy this week.

I downloaded the zip and loaded it into netbeans 6.01
I didn't find any later versions out there.
