This may be a silly question, but reading this just makes me wonder --
you do have an appropriate <!DOCTYPE as the very first line of your HTML
to prevent IE going into Quirks Mode?

I don't usually have *that* much trouble getting IE to render very
similarly to Firefox (and IE8 is reportedly much better), but if IE is
in Quirks Mode it makes a huge difference and presents all sorts of
rendering problems. (The Firefox Web Developer plugin will tell you if a
page is rendering in Quirks Mode or Standards Compliance Mode.)
