CSS Checkbox showing different in Firefox than IE

I'm using code from http://24ways.org/2009/have-a-field-day-with-html5-forms/ to help me style forms (and learn more CSS).

The problem is that the checkbox element behaves differently in Firefox than in IE.  I want the checkbox to be on the left of the box like IE, not toward the middle like Firefox. I set up a very simple page here http://buildmomentum.org/register/test2.php to see the difference.  (I'm using Firefox 24 and IE 10)

I've tried floating and aligning every element that's possible without any effect.  The code is below.

I appreciate any help given.

Thanks,

Steve

Why are you setting the width of the checkbox to 200px - that will make the actual checkbox appear in the center.

That's probably the easiest 500 points you've made.  :)  Removing the 200 px width did the trick.  

Thanks!
