CSS issues on IE7

As reported on ckan-dev:

items in the footer of CKAN ("Packages", "Groups & Tags", "About", "Language", etc.) are shown vertically instead of horizontally in IE7. This works fine in later browsers like IE8, IE9, FF4, and latest Opera and Chrome.

This seems to exist in all recent CKAN versions up to 1.4.1a.

This is a known issue and of low importance.

The issue is due to IE7 (and IE6) not supporting inline-block. patch-1219-A0.diff works around the issue.

I'm reopening this ticket in case you want to consider my patch.

But note that I won't be offended if you close it as wontfix again. I agree this is pretty minor, and that working around old browsers' limitations isn't always a good idea.
