In addition to this, Internet Explorer 6 ignores all paddings as well.

Padding on the table-element doesn't make sense; you should apply them to the td/th-elements.

Anyway, it is well-known that IE has not correctely implemented the table-layout model (lacking display:table-xxx, not implemented border-spacing and empty-cells).

I could get IE to render the margin though by giving the container a small height or width; looks like another hasLayout bug.
