Look at the source code underneath. In FF and IE there is a padding difference - FF puts the text exactly one pixel higher towards the border of the yellow box. How can I correct this in my CSS? I want both IE and FF to render exactly the same.

use overflow:visible; in the CSS.  That is the magic "fudge factor" that M$ came up with to fudge their forced extra-space padding of form and other elements.  It should have been called overflow:hidden, but M$ usually thinks off in another dimension somewhere, so take it for what it's worth.  Someone in M$ decided that EVERYONE should see elements padded in whatever way that M$ wanted.  Duuuhh  !!
