How do I tweak the position of the logo (upper left) so that it sits in the same place on different browsers?  Looks great in Safari.  Not so good in other browsers.  


How it is supposed to look:

.sidebar1 {
	float: left;
	width: 180px;
	background-color: none;
	padding-bottom: 10px;

.img_gei_logo { /*topleft logo over nav bar */
	left: 110px; 

  <div class="sidebar1"><img src="img/logo_gei.png" alt="GEI Technology Solutions" width="263" height="241" class="img_gei_logo" />
  <div class="sidebar_nav">
    <ul class="nav">
      <li><a href="audio.html">Audio</a></li>
      <li><a href="theater.html">Home Theater</a></li>
      <li><a href="automation.html">Home Automation</a></li>
      <li><a href="security.html">Security</a></li>
      <li><a href="wiring.html">Structured Wiring</a></li>
      <li><a href="telecom.html">Telecom/Networking</a></li>
      <li><a href="contact.html">Contact Us</a></li>
      <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
    <div class="sidebar_logos"><img src="img/logo_control4.png" alt="Control 4 Dealer" width="156" height="155" class="logos_sidebar" /></div>
        <div class="sidebar_logos"><img src="img/logo_cedia.png" alt="Control 4 Dealer" width="155" height="213" class="logos_sidebar" /></div>
            <div class="sidebar_logos"><img src="img/logo_manty.png" alt="Control 4 Dealer" width="160" height="53" class="logos_sidebar" /></div>
  </div><!-- end sidebar 1 -->

Looks the same to me in all browsers (including Safari)

In .img_gei_logo set top to 0 and left to -50px

Add position:relative to .sidebar1

Change the top on the logo to -100px (tweak as necessary)
