Different font rendering in IE8 and Firefox with same CSS

Hi,

I have this question if someqne knows why a usual css style renders differently in Ie8 and Firefox. The style is very easy.
body
{
    font-family:verdana;
    font-size:8pt;
    font-weight:normal;
}

In Firefox it is rendering correctly but not in IE8, all gets bold there. How can I fix this? I've checked several computors with IE8 and it's the same.
You can see what I mean in the attached images and also on this link:

Thanks for your help!

I think the problem is not with your CSS but with your HTML.
There is a <b> just after the span with id "ctl00_Label3" which is never closed.  Firefox assumes it should be closed when the next <div> starts, but IE goes on applying the bold formatting to the following text.
