Internet Explorer 8: Final three hyperlinks in the right hand mini-menu become unclickable

Links to the right aren’t all clickable

If you’re using Internet Explorer 8 BETA 2, you might notice and odd occurrence of the navigation list to the right of this paragraph.

As a third example, look how IE 8 makes part of the links unclickable, if this paragraph of text is only slightly too long and wraps a little around the navigation list to the right. The first part of the links aren’t clickable, but the second half are fine.

It looks like IE8 is creating an invisible block over the area the paragraph takes up, as the border area matches that of the links that suddenly become unclickable (Image sample).

This only happens in standards mode, compatibility mode doesn’t contain this bug.
