No 'current' version of IE/Win that I know of includes margins *inside the box width* as you have
stated. IE5.x/Win browsers, and IE6 in quirks mode use their broken box model and include borders
and padding within a stated box width, but the margins still extend correctly.

First, it's a width property, not attribute. The width attribute is used in HTML pages to specifiy
widths for images, for example.
IE5.x/Win browsers do not understand the escape character, but IE6 does, whether in standard or
quirks mode. The suggested filter is a useful one, when you need to give IE5.x/Win browsers a
different value than other browsers for the property you are using, but it will not filter for IE6.
For the original poster, Georg's solution is a good one.
