asp:Table renders differently in VS2008 than IIS 6.0

I have a couple of asp:tables (one is attached, the other is very similar). This centers the tables in the Visual Studio development server but not in IIS 6.0 in my demo/staging server. In VS2008, the tables are centered; in IIS 6.0 it seems to ignore the Left specification in the style attribute.

Thanks!

<table cellspacing="5px" width="60%" border="2px" style="left:20%; position:relative">
            <tr>
                <td align="right"><asp:Label ID="nameLabel" runat="server" Text="Logged In User:"  /></td>
                <td align="left"><asp:TextBox ID="nameTB" runat="server" ReadOnly="true" CssClass="userName" /></td>
            </tr>
        </table>

Try this


           
<table cellspacing="5px" width="60%" border="2px"  style="left:20%; position:relative; z-index: auto;">
            <tr>
                <td align="right"><asp:Label ID="nameLabel" runat="server" Text="Logged In User:"  /></td>
                <td align="left"><asp:TextBox ID="nameTB" runat="server" ReadOnly="true" CssClass="userName" /></td>
            </tr>
        </table>

Its working in both case. are you using any parent control (like table to div)?

The table is inside a div with style horizontal-align:Center. Neither of the above solutions is working in IIS. They do work in VS development server, as does my original code. I'm wondering if there is a setting in IIS 6.0 that affects this? Or a .NET service pack? I believe my server is fully up to date but I may have missed something.

Here is a shot of the bad rendering (IIS 6.0) (bad.png) and the good one (Visual Studio 2008 Dev server) (good.png).

try to make border=1 for your table
and then start to edit the values of padding , align ..etc
once u put border =1 it can help u determine what to do
and why the table is missed

It is not related to IIS or any service pack. Its basic HTML error.
Can you post the more design code (Atleast upper portion of page) ?

It turned out to be compatibility mode. It was turned on for intranet sites. When I turned it off, rendering was normal.

Thanks for all the suggestions!
