This isn't DD Tab Content script you're using on your page it seems...

Even if it were, the problem is with the jquery.selectBox.js script, more specifically or at least correctable visa vis its jquery.selectBox.css file.

Here's what to do -

Make a supplemental stylesheet, call it - say, jquery.selectBox.ie8.css and put it in the same folder as the jquery.selectBox.css stylesheet. In it put this rule:

.selectBox-label {
display: inline-block;
margin-top: 3px;

Add it to your pages like so (addition highlighted):

<script src="http://gojtp.com/avtec/wp-content/themes/avtec-theme/jquery-selectbox/jquery.selectBox.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<link href="http://gojtp.com/avtec/wp-content/themes/avtec-theme/jquery-selectbox/jquery.selectBox.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<link href="http://gojtp.com/avtec/wp-content/themes/avtec-theme/jquery-selectbox/jquery.selectBox.ie8.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script type="text/javascript">
// debugger;

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).read . . .

That's it!

Note: You can probably just add those styles to the end of jquery.selectBox.css and forget about the supplemental stylesheet as in Firefox at least it doesn't hurt it and in fact centers the labels in the buttons better vertically. You'd have to test in your other target browsers, but I imagine they would be fine with it too.
