Actually, a lot of this probably has to do with your HTML. The UL's
you are styling have title="Navigation" or title="NavigationTop". It
looks like IE is improperly translating this into class="Navigation"
and class="NavigationTop" and therefore implementing the rules that
are removing your margins. Firefox is properly ignoring the titles,
and giving you the advantage of its default margins and padding. Try
switching "title" with "class" on your UL's, then start working on it

.... as long as your user base and business model permits you to do so.
This is good advice for a business that is not heavily impacted by Mac
IE usage. Typically, most businesses do not have to consider this
group. As a business catering to graphic design, you will probably
have a higher weighting for Macintosh than other businesses. As David
mentions, Safari and Firefox will likely be your most prevalent Mac
user base, but I'd recommend avoiding hard-and-fast absolutes on this.
As a developer on a site that caters to several million users, 0.1% is
still about 5,000 people who, if not helped on the web, will certainly
call us, typically on a monthly basis, since we are a financial
institution without a physical presence. That increases service center
costs, as well as going against our primary mission of providing
exceptional service to our customers. Your mileage may vary.
