CSS Internet Explorer Browser Differences

For some reason, in internet explorer, the words are indented much further than shown in Chrome or Safari. Is there a reason for this perhaps due to differences in CSS for the various browsers?

<div class="container">
<div class="centered">

    echo "<a href='/LOGO'>LOGO</a>";


margin:0 auto;
width: 954px;   
border-bottom: 1px solid gray;
font-size: 27px;
background: #4D94DB;
color: black;
    min-height: 37px;


Use this css reset in first line:

html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe,
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre,
a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code,
del, dfn, em, font, img, ins, kbd, q, s, samp,
small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var,
b, u, i, center,
dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li,
fieldset, form, label, legend, caption {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    border: 0;
    outline: 0;
    font-size: 100%;
    vertical-align: baseline;
    background: transparent;
body {
    line-height: 1;
ol, ul {
    list-style: none;
blockquote, q {
    quotes: none;

/* remember to define focus styles! */
:focus {
    outline: 0;

/* remember to highlight inserts somehow! */
ins {
    text-decoration: none;
del {
    text-decoration: line-through;

/* tables still need 'cellspacing="0"' in the markup */
table {
    border-collapse: collapse;
    border-spacing: 0;

Reference Reset CSS

You also might want to add the following to the top of your reset code:

*, *:before, *:after {
-moz-box-sizing: border-box;
-webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
box-sizing: border-box;


Also you are using a container width of 100%. Make sure you have some sort of container element around that with some sort of fixed with unit; ie px, em, etc. Without that each browser will size the box based on the font. Each browser and platform will rendering font slightly different resulting in different widths.

It may be the problem with quirks mode. Do You have a proper doctype?

Add something like this to Your CSS to debug. There may be an forgotten element or something.

html { border: solid 1px black;}
body { border: solid 1px red;}
div  { border: solid 1px green;}
