Might want to check what encoding the servers are sending the pages as, or if either one
is adding a DOCTYPE adding on it's own (the latter I doubt, while the previous is about
the only explanation I can think of for why it might serve a static page differently just
because of the host).
A different encoding enforced by the server to the browser could cause a different in the
way certain spaces are rendered, not likely but as I said about the only reason I can
think of, other than script parsing differences on the host which I'm assuming there
wouldn't be before hand.
