CSS UL Background Image position off in IE works in FF

In Firefox it works wonderfully, as you can see in the attached image.. (The right part)...

BUT in IE, the background image is indented; I can't seem to figure out how to fix this.

HELP! :)

Thanks
.moduletableheadbox ul.latestnewsheadbox  {
	background-image: url(/images/box/bg_left_small_content.gif);
	color: #FFF;
	text-align: left;
	list-style-type:disc;
	list-style-position:inside;
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-right: 0px;
	padding-bottom:15px;
	text-indent: -18px;
	font-size: 15px;
}

Its part of a Joomla module... The module code is as follows..
<?php // no direct access
defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access'); ?>
<ul class="latestnews<?php echo $params->get('moduleclass_sfx'); ?>">
<?php foreach ($list as $item) :  ?>
	<li class="latestnews<?php echo $params->get('moduleclass_sfx'); ?>">
		<a href="<?php echo $item->link; ?>" class="latestnews<?php echo $params->get('moduleclass_sfx'); ?>">
			<?php echo $item->text; ?></a>
	</li>
<?php endforeach; ?>
</ul>

try something like this

.moduletableheadbox ul.latestnewsheadbox  {
        background-image: url(/images/box/bg_left_small_content.gif);
            background-color:#000;
        color: #FFF;

        list-style-type:disc;
        list-style-position:inside;
        margin-top: 0px;
        padding-bottom:15px;
        text-indent: -18px;

Greetings:
Personally, I prefer not using negative margins, and use nested DIV to create a more fluid site. Try the link below and see if it helps:
http://www.page2pagepro.com/expert-exchange/example0001/


For DIV to be 'happy' in both IE and FF, the border is created by nesting DIV also. This forces the DIVs to be the same dimension cross-browser.


You may also consider using a universal 'CSS RESET':
http://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2007/05/01/reset-reloaded/

This helps to start on the same foot.
-Cheers!
