Try giving the <li>'s a margin or padding. And WRT the borders issue,
Mozilla and IE indent lists differently: Mozilla uses padding, IE uses
margin. If you want to apply a border to the whole list, try this:

ol {
	margin: 0;
	padding: 2em;
	border: 1px solid #ccc;

Of course, it looks like you've got it figure out already, but this
should eliminate that unnecessary div :)
