Is the Tabs control broken in IE-9?

The AW.UI.Tabs control appears to be broken on Internet Explorer version 9. Yesterday we discovered this while doing a demo for potential customers with web pages already in live operation for other customers running IE-8.

I built a stripped down demo page here: https://orthopedicnetworknews.com/TabTest.html.

This is a serious problem for us. I don't know where to begin to fix this. HELP!!!

Oops -- clicking the link above picks up the trailing period. It's "TabTest.html" not "TabTest.html." Sorry

I stripped it down even more. Nothing extra. see it live at https://orthopedicnetworknews.com/TabTest2.html

Here is the code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <link href="ActiveWidgets/runtime/styles/xp/aw.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" ></link>
    <script src="ActiveWidgets/runtime/lib/aw.js"></script>
<body style="padding:30px;">
<script language=JavaScript>
    var tabs = new AW.UI.Tabs;
    tabs.setItemText(["Tab 1","Tab 2","Tab 3","Tab 4"]);
    document.write( tabs.toString() );

Yes, this is a bug in AW 2.6.0 and earlier versions. Should be fixed with -

.aw-ms9 .aw-ui-tabs .aw-item-box {
        width: auto;
