Aha! I found the problem. It's the header. If a module (any module) is in the header, it breaks. It works if I have the module in any other place but inside the header.

Does that help point you in the right direction?

well... yes and no.

There wasnt any broken HTML in the header when the module was in there so there isnt much I can do there. It seems down to a limitation with IE7 and that particular style mixed with a really high vote (the ratings will stretch to the size of the longest result).

REgardless, Im happy it's sorted for you

So even having the TOC in the header causes problems. Is there a way to hardcode the TOC into the GARS_pb? I'd really like to have the TOC there. If not the righthand column gets pretty long.

Oh and it happens in IE6 as well. I tested it this morning.

That helped out a bit. I set it to 50px. How can I fix inside the TOC? THere's so much padding on the left side of the list.

I tried changing the width to 90% and 100% and that helps it fit, but then the size of the TOC box drastically changes from page to page.

I also went into the display/toc.php file and removed the list tags. Is there anything else I can do to help this?

The reason I am concerned is because I was going to start offering premium listings and if people are going to paying for this I want them to be happy with it.

The size of ANY of the modules to on the left are going to fluctuate depending on their content. The width option will at least give you a consistent minimum width that should cover most instances. If you lower that too much, then the TOC box or ratings will over stretch the area when the rating bars OR page text names get too long.
