NHSJobs - IE vs FF (Welcome & Quick Search)

This is a screenshot on my 1024x768 screen of the top of both sites in IE and
FF.  I don't see that much of a difference on each screen, but I do see a

Could it be that IE is improperly rendering the page?

Validator for page:
(Only problems are minor, which is suprisingly good)

Validator for CSS:

Problem for cursor is minor (IE only pref, annoyingly lame)
display: inline-block may be the cause of the problem, but I'm not sure.

Additional info: I'm not a resident of the UK and I can't get past apply's short
application form (asks for a login too) without being one, so I can't see that.
 Otherwise, things look ok.  I too would like to see a screenshot of the problem

The code they use is invalid, for example, they have width on the <span>:s to
have the space between the text and the form fields. Only block elements can
have width/height, not inline elements. IE has this bug where it applies the
width/height to inline elements.
