Space height problem after <p> in IE & Firefox

I just have a quick question, and I'm not sure how to phrase it in order to search for it.

On quite a few pages on my website, I have a problem with the space height after <p> being extremely different between IE & Firefox.

Here is what I mean. In Firefox, the margin space between the top and bottom divider lines and the text is how I want it. It's equal. In IE, the top margin is right, but you see there is a much wider space between the text and the bottom divider line.

I have other instances on the page where other things like this aren't uniform. How do I fix it so that it's the same between both browsers?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, fourstringdrums!

Have you tried using CSS to make the margins around your paragraphs uniform? The CSS could be:

p { margin: 10px; }

Yea and it still is un-uniform across browsers. But I looked a buddy of mine's CSS, and took some img code he had from his CSS that sets top and bottom margin around images, and I made a seperate class for all the places I was having problems. Seems to be working now.
