Default Spacing between DIV blocks

There are some vertical DIV blocks in my Transitional HTML page. To give some vertical space in between, can I use this code below?
<div style="height:10px"></div>
I used it and its working, but there is a difference in heights with IE 6.0 and Firefox. The spacing in IE 6.0 is 13px where as Firefox takes correct space of 10px.

Why don't you just give the already existing DIVs a margin? For example 'margin-bottom: 10px'. No need to add extra HTML elements.

Meow has wise advise use CSS to do what u need also try to avoid style attributes within your HTML
try this
<div class="costumDiv">
  first div 
<div class="costumDiv">
  second div
