Start with the obvious question: What does your current CSS say about borders? Check padding and margins while you're at it.

Never leave something up to the browser's discretion if you need it to look exactly the same everywhere. Some people start their CSS with a generic

* {border: none; margin: 0; padding: 0;}

though this may be overkill. If you go that route you can throw in more stuff like

{font-size: inherit; font-family: inherit; text-align: left;}

and so on. And then give each element only those attributes you specifically want it to have.

:: insert boilerplate about MSIE here ::

Thanks you, after i had removed the "shadow" elements, i didn't see the problems like before. So thanks for your idea :D

Having problems with IE is normal and expected. I did not see what the "shadow elements" are but they probably don't work in IE9.

And you should never go that route.
