Try giving the .treeview a CSS style of padding:0;

Like this in your treemenu.css:

.treeview {padding:0;}

If your page is as simple as you've posted, first you should start out with a reset CSS to alleviate cross-browser defaults.

Paste that CSS before any other CSS and then let us know.

If LZ1's suggestion doesn't work, I would change your CSS to ID's and eliminate the need to call a separate class. Line 13 of your HTML would look like this: <ul id="treeview">

and your CSS:
#treeview ul{ /*CSS for Simple Tree Menu*/
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

#treeview li{ /*Style for LI elements in general (excludes an LI that contains sub lists)*/
background: white url(list.gif) no-repeat left center;
list-style-type: none;
padding-left: 22px;
margin-bottom: 3px;
}

#treeview li.submenu{ /* Style for LI that contains sub lists (other ULs). */
background: white url(closed.gif) no-repeat left 1px;
cursor: hand !important;
cursor: pointer !important;
}

#treeview li.submenu ul{ /*Style for ULs that are children of LIs (submenu) */
display: none; /*Hide them by default. Don't delete. */
}

#treeview .submenu ul li{ /*Style for LIs of ULs that are children of LIs (submenu) */
cursor: default;
}

Strange as it sounds, have seen positioning oddities utilizing classes before. I try to us them only for text/visual styles, and leave my positioning (margins, padding, etc.) to div IDs. Hope that helps.
