IE Divs not lining up.

I have a simple 3 Colum CSS that is used to position simple graphic elements. E.g. Header.jpg, colleft.jpg, colright.jpg with a content area in the middle and footer. In IE the header does not line up correctly with the left and right columns. IT works fine in FF and Chrome.

I have tried these hacks. Any suggestion would be much appreciated.

display:block;
.imgContainer {font-size:0;}

You haven't given enough information to really help, but there are some simple things. First, do you have a complete <!DOCTYPE> statement so that browsers are set to Standards Compliance Mode? Second, set all of the affected elements to margin:0; padding:0; to override the default settings in the different browsers. If that doesn't help show where the problem lies, post the code. Good luck!
