Default

Including the XML prologue <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> causes IE6 to go into quirks rendering mode, which will significantly change the output of that markup. I haven't tested the code you posted, but I imagine that's a good place to start. All of the examples in CSS Instant Results were written for standards compliant rendering mode.

Regards,
Rich
