I think that's expected, you will need to refresh the first time.

That's problematic. Searching finds this:

"IE/Win only allows the :hover pseudo-class to be applied to a link — so 
the li:hover that makes the sub-menus appear means nothing to IE"

The same article has some Javascript to work around the issue, a version 
of this could be added to space.js. However, I don't have (MS don't 
supply) a current version of IE for the Mac and so I have no way to test 
it. I wouldn't know where to begin setting up a test website on Windows 
either, ....any volunteers to fix for IE?

I can change the font easily - I'll look for ways to change line 
spacing, shouldn't be hard :-)
