 FB> em doesnt work very well in MSIE, try using in or pt.

I tried that, and it didn't work. The .margin element still takes
all the width it can get (it has a background color, so it's clearly
visible) and dosn't float at all.

The reference example is even simpler, it dosn't specify any width or
margins, just float:left; so it should take the space it needs, just
as an <img align="left" ...> in HTML ...
