MSIE7 fieldset bug

There is a div element with float:left inside a fieldset. The fieldset has "border:1px solid #64461A;".

Inside the fieldset is <em> element. When <em> tag is removed, there is no more border bug.

Workaround: remove em tags when using float items inside the fieldset.

(ppknote: this bug does not occur in IE6.)

I think it is basically the float combined with italic text that triggers this, not necessarily the fieldset or the em element.
We have seen float/italic bugs in IE6 but this is indeed different, but still a hasLayout bug: forcing 'layout' on the element containing the italic text solves the problem.
