In IE7 #3 and #5 have the same "problem" with the headings mentioned above.
Next difference is the blue box in #3 (mentioned before in the thread 
and fixed).
There are also minor differences with a very small black line between 
grey "header line" and the white background of the "body": #3 has one, 
#5 has not,
but I like #5 more.
At least in the left nav bar #3 has no lines between the headings, while 
#5 does have lines between them, #5 seems better.


P.S.: These kinds of bugs make me dislike web-frontend development. 
Browser-vendors, Browser-versions, even OS dependent behaviour, did I 
mention the several versions
of (X)HTML/CSS. Thank you for having the patience and knowledge to fix 
these issues.
