Padding isn't meant to be used as positioning tool in this way, but you might try setting the margins of those <div> elements to 0.

By the way, you should really look at this in IE6, where the PNG transparencies don't work. :)

So what would you suggest using to position them? Thanks for your help.

Well not trying to be an ass, but, I would have done everything differently. This works like a print layout would, not a web layout.

However, if I was going to do this I would break of the entire thing into horizontal groups. I would make the cuts at the top of where each button would occur. That way, I'd only need to position horizontally.

You really shouldn't use the PNG's, either. These transparencies will not work in IE6. IMO, there are still plenty of people using IE6 and I wouldn't assume your client has upgraded.

Are you talking about using Fireworks to cut the image up? Or cutting the actual image up in photoshop?

I think you could the job in either one.

Alright, well thank you very much for your help.

But do you know what the deal is with IE and padding? How any why their system works so differently than everything else?

I'm not sure it was the padding. I think the issue might be default margining. In either case, I think you would need to equalize everything to zero to get consistency, then add the padding or margining you wanted.

If you have a Windows machine, all of the browsers you need are available for download. You can test your design and markup in each one.
