    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="CommonBanner.ascx.cs" Inherits="CommonBanner" %>
    <!--[if lt IE 7]><div id="advBanner" style='position: absolute;'>
    <img src="/images/ribbons/Ribbon_indexed.png" alt=" If that's where you thought you were, you're not... but click here and we'll take care of that for you." usemap="#mapLifetimeTV" /><![endif]-->
    <![if gte IE 7]><div id="advBanner">
