Hello Allen Smothers,
The behavior you have described may be caused by inherited global styles. Please, try the following - exclude your styles from the project and reload the page, then check if the problem persists. If it doesn't, please, send us a small running project and we will fix this for you, or change your global styles (i.e. selectors that are elements, not classes) to class selectors.
However, if the case is not the one that I have guessed, prepare and send us a small running project so we can observe the issue and come with a solution.
All the best,
the Telerik team
