      Run your moodle site on Internet Explorer and click on the dock option on each block. Notice that the docks becomes bold with the letter of the block heading congested hence making it hard to read the heading.

      Description

      Hi,

      The Docks when enabled does not show clearly on the left side of the moodle site on Internet Explorer 8 or 9. This sounds like a css rendering issue. Even the official community moodle site will not show up the docks properly when the blocks are docked to the left side of the window, instead it looks bold and congested. Does any one have a hack or something to fix this rendering issue on Internet Explorer?
