Text shift problem...

P: n/a
I am working on a site that is being served to a private network. All
the users are using IE.

What I am trying to do is label some groups of text - I can't use an
<olbecause the labeling will be broken over several divs - thus I
decided that I would add the labels manually. What I thought I could
do was float my label div to the left then use the left-margin of my
next div to create the offset or margin. This seems to be working fine
except that the text on the 1st couple of lines in the 2nd div is
shifted to the right by a couple of pixels.

Here's a sample page showing the problem:

Notice that the 1st line or so of the text inside blue bordered divs
is shifted to the right by a few pixels.

QUESTIONS:
1. Is an easier way to get the labelling effect I am looking for? I'm
open to suggestions.
2. Regardless of my labelling issue, can anyone tell me what the
source of the text shift problem is and what can be done to correct
it?

Your feedback appreciated.

? You can put DIVs, and just about anything else, inside an LI.

It is? It's all aligned when I look at it in Firefox and IE7.
