Microsoft Learning Gateway My Planner Web Part Styling

I’ve been creating some site definitions for a customer recently and hit a snag on a page with the My Planner web part was displaying strangely.

If you look closely you can see that with the custom styles we are using, the drop down arrow to the right of Sharepoint Calendars has overlapped the text. It’s obviously a style problem and has an easy fix. You just need to open up C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\LGUtilities\styles\dropdown.css and modify a couple of widths. It’s just a case of trial and error to get what works with your styles, but it’s .MainNavigation ul and .MainNavigation ul li which need changing.
