Just as well you didn't, as it's incorrect. IE5's broken box model
included padding and border in the width, but not the margin.
I suspect your issue is with fractions. 49+49+2=100 right enough, but
let's apply that to a real-world screen. 49% of a 1005-pixel-wide
viewport is 492.45 pixels. The browser can't light up a fraction of a
pixel, and the standard leaves the handling of fractional pixel
widths to the browser, so some will truncate and some will round up.
Hence some browsers will see your layout as 492+492+20=1004 and some
as 493+493+21=1007 pixels wide.
Moral: let your percentages add up to 99, *not* 100, and you'll
always stay within bounds.
