3px Gap Between Divs in IE

Hi, I am trying to design a page layout using DIVs. The problem I am having is that a 3px gap appears between the three div's at the top of the page when using IE, there is no gap in NN. I have searched through alot of similar problems/solutions but none have worked. The two div's below the top 3 behave correctly with no gap and I cannot see why there is a difference. A solution and good explanation to my problem would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

body {

#container {
text-align: center;
width:90%;
background: white;
padding: 10px;
}

#end_cap {
background: green;
border: none;
float: right;
width: 150px;
height: 125px;
}

#left_cap {
background: red;
border: none;
float: left;
width: 150px;
height: 125px;
}

#header {
height: 125px;
text-align: center;
background: yellow;
float: none;
}

#nav_bar {
background-color: yellow;
border: 2px solid blue;
width: 175px;
height: 550px;
float: left;
}

#page {
border: 2px solid RED;
float: none;
}

Both HTML and CSS validate fine.

I am not sure which one are you referrring to.

But you can try this and hope I understand you correctly.

body {
background: silver;
text-align: center;
margin-top: 0px;
}

Try with:
*{
       margin:0px;
       padding:0px;
}

Sorry I dont think I explained things very well. across the top of the page I have 3 div's next to each other, instead of being flush next to each other IE is putting a 3 px gap between the div's-I have set the background to red yellow and green to make it easier, I would like a solution and possible explanation whats happening so I can avoid this in future.

Use this fix:

#end_cap {
background: green;
border: none;
float: right;
width: 150px;
height: 125px;
margin-left:-3px;
}

#left_cap {
background: red;
border: none;
float: left;
width: 150px;
height: 125px;
margin-right:-3px;
}

in FF the dimensions don't change.


p.s. sorry for the bad english
