>>nternet Explorer is including the margin *inside the box width*, while
>>W3C-spec browsers (rightly) are not.
>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.
>>The escape character is handy What you can do is add:
>>And IE will not parse the "w\idth" attribute, while FF, Saf, Opera, etc
>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.

Yes, I knew I was wrong before I spoke, and should have just kept quiet,
but my fingers lept ahead of my brain. "It is better to remain silent,"
as it were. I was already corrected, and I do apologize for the
confusion, as as well as the inappropriate terminology; things I know
better than to confuse. It was one of those no-sleep nights, and I
should have thought better about posting in the first place.
Let the archives show, "there are no margins inside the IE/Win
boxmodel," and all hacks are not, in fact, created equal. ;)
