IE Margin Issue

Hey all,
I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't seem to find the answer (don't know exactly how to word it)...

I've got a table and I set the margin like so:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. style="margin:0px 40px;"
In FF it looks fine... in IE, the right margin of the table appears to be zero (text pushed right against right-side of window). I tried writing like so:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. style="margin-left: 40px; margin-right: 40px;"
but the same problem occurs.. I also tried increasing the margin-right to 80px thinking that maybe there was some kinda offset issue but the text is still pressed against the right-side of the window.

Any thoughts?

I seem to have fixed the problem... though I don't know why it was happening in the first place (guessin an IE bug)...

I forgot to mention in the previous post that this was a nested table. As such, I used padding on the cell the table was located in instead of setting the magin on the nested table itself:
[HTML]<td colspan="2" style="padding:0px 40px;">[/HTML]

It now looks the same in both browsers. I'd still appreciate a reply if anyone knows why this happened.

It's always an IE bug.

I rarely use tables for anything so I'm not much help here.
