IE's box model is broken; It doesn't handle margins correctly. Actually,
I've discovered IE doesn't handle several large chunks of the visual
formatting model correctly. Unfortunately Mozilla doesn't render
everything quite right either.

That's what the Mozilla composer suggested, but my IE 5.0 just doesn't
display it properly. Luckily, it does work with <table style="float:
right"> as suggested by Steven.
