[wikka-community] Float Right problem on IE7

Its the horizontal problem.
Its supposed to float to the right with some body text filling in on the 
left side. On IE7 it shows spread all the way from left to right with 
the body text pushed below the float box.

As a test, I took a snapshot of the page so I could play with the css. 
One solution that sort of fixed the problem was to add a width to the 
floatr css rule. That caused IE7 to render it the same way as the others 
rendered it. The problem with that solution is that then all right 
floats are the same size.

You can look at the problem at http://www.xtrkcad.org. The float in 
question is the "Useful Links" box.
