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;
        text-align: left;
        list-style-type:disc;
        list-style-position:inside;

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':

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