I'll bet it's because you lack a doctype at the
top of the page. If you leave it off modern browsers
figure it's an old pre-standards page, and so they
emulate the way browsers used to work. (quirks mode)
With a strict or transitional doctype the browsers
kick into 'standards' mode. Other than doctype,
your page looks like it follows
the rules for strict mode. (kinda sure anyway)
Here's a link to the W3C doctypes:
Hope this helps. :]
