What's in the water at Duke that y'all keep coming up with the best
looking Plone skins?

Unfortunately, this is not only a CSS thing, but is very hard to solve
because IE and Opera don't have visual CSS debugging tools like Firefox
So one thing I'm seeing is this is a fixed width layout. The default
portal-logo, which is a background image, is for the default liquid layout.
You may want to change that in your skin to an img tag in the
global_logo template. I've messed with that one when I've had weird
IE-dependent layout issues. CSS in IE is just broken beyond recognition
and so you have to play with it.
You may also want to pose the question on the Plone UI list, which says
it "can be used for CSS questions, usability advice - and is also the
official mailing list for the Plone UI team."
There are people on that list who know everything not just about browser
quirks, but which browser quirks affect Plone's CSS. In fact, I see
someone asking a portal-logo question on that list just today. :)
