Creating CSS border around images

Im trying to create a border around my images that is about 6px of white and then a 1px grey border around that. Im using:

background-color: #ffffff;
padding: 6px;
border: 1px solid #dfdad4;

This works great in Firefox 2 but it doesnt work at all in IE. Does anybody have any ideas on how I could make this work?

Which doctype are you using?
Aug 8 '07 #2
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

That is the Doctype im using. I am having trouble though changing anything in the header because Im working with DotNetNuke. So you think changing the Doctype to XHTML compliant will help?

The doctype you used was incomplete throwing IE into quirks mode. Quirks mode is IEs original failure to comply properly with the standard and used the wrong method for determining the width and height of elements. Using a proper doctype makes sure IE follows at least that part of the standard.
