When I have a list in a table
<table>
<tr>
<td>
<ul>
<li>one
<li>two
</ul>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

and do

table {
   margin-left: 5%;
}

it adds relative to the cell, and the list is set to the right 5% within the
cell. This is in MSIE beta2.

Is this correct? That the cell inherits the (parent) table margin because
its a percentage? But how do you position the table out from the body margin?

Thanks

Steve
