That was exactly that.
Thanks liorean (at the same time a friend on the irc found the solution too)

Thanks again. Why didn't I think sooner of 'standards' vs 'quirks' is 
beyond me.

Another funny thing I jsut noticed: if I specify a DOCTYPE IE goes into 
standards mode and shows a horizontal scrollbar, which is not wanted.

For now I'll have to let things in quirks mode then (urgence being what 
it is).
