Are you using CSS ?  This worked for me:

<div style="margin-top:20px; margin-left:20px;" >
      test
</div>

Netscape 7.1 seems to run fine with marginheight and marginwidth when I use just HTML

What I ment to say (type) is that for you to use these in the body tag, you need to use all four to work on IE and Netscape.  marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0"

Sorry

My vote is to go with hyperslug.  this gets around alot of browser issues and is almost globally browser compatible.

Yes it is.  topmargin is not in the spec for XHTML and won't work.  Use regular HTML if you wish to continue using topmargin.
