bottom margin in div in ie6, no bottom margin if FF or Chrome

I have a web page with a "container" and an image inside the container.  I am trying to get the image to display with white space on both sides but no white space on the top or bottom.  The code below works perfect in FireFox and Chrome but in Internet Explorer 6, it has a 10 pixel margin or white space below the image.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head><title>CSS Rounded Corners Revisted</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<style>
* {
padding: 0px;
margin: 0px;
}
html {
overflow-y: scroll; /* scrollbar fix */
}
body {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
background-color: #023568;
font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 100%;

}
 
#container {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
font-size: 0.75em;
overflow: hidden;
width: 580px;
margin: 0 auto;
}
* html #container {

The first thing I would recommend is making a separate ID for the image DIV.  And then putting your CSS in their rather than inline.  
let me know if that works. I tried it on my end, and it looked ok.

Do you mean like this: ??

background-image: url(circle-white-blue.jpg);
background-position: 10px 10px;
width: 10px;
height: 10px;
float: right;
font-size: 0;
}

#logoImage {
style='width: 425px;
height:844px;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="container">
<span class="tl"></span><span class="tr"></span>
<div id="logoImage">
<img src="images/mano-logo-videosNEW425x344.jpg" width="425" height="344">
</div>
<span class="bl"></span><span class="br"></span>
</div>
</body>

I think that maybe this cannot done because the various browsers are too different.
