    Dear Telerik Wizards,

    See the two attached images. Both are incorrect. As can be seen from the menu items below, the group setting is set to a particular height and width - in IE the width is no where near 800, in Chrome it seems to be much greater than 800.
    Basically I am using the menu items to show short snippets of content that I do no want to bother with an entire page for...


    <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="About Us" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Chris">
                        <GroupSettings Height="400" Width="800" />
                                <tr><td colspan="2">Dr. Christian Peter Wagner</td></tr>
                                    <td style="vertical-align:top;">
                                        <asp:Image ID="Image1" ImageUrl="~/Images/2009_Chris001.png" Width="100" runat="server" />
                                    <td style="vertical-align:top;">
                                        <p>Welcome to R Teachings!</p>
                                        <p>What you will find on this site is wisdom concerning how to live your life.
                                           It will always be your choice to interpret what is said and see if it works from you.</p>
                                        <p>The work here is channeled... and to some this may seem like a strange idea.
                                           Simply put, understanding channeling depends upon how you understand the universe.
                                           If you believe that human kind is the highest life in the universe and there is no God,
                                           then channeling can simply be viewed as performance art. The channel enters an altered state and,
                                           from this altered state, speaks. You might understand that many musicians improvise.
                                           So, from some view, channeling is verbal improvisation.</p>
                                        <p>If you believe in God, in angels, in higher energies, then you can interpret channeling
                                           very differently. Indeed, if you believe that God pervades all that is, then those
                                           with focus and desire can tap into this divine flow and speak from there,
                                           then channeling can be a higher level of wisdom than human's can normally achieve.</p>
                                        <p>It is surely not my place to tell you how to organize and understand YOUR experience!</p>
                                        <p>In my day job, I have been a professor of Engineering and Computer Science for over 30 years...
                                           at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. My research interest is Artificial Intelligence.
                                           Although an engineer, my PhD is in educational psychology, so I have a different view of life
                                           than most engineers. That difference has been further extended because of many transformational
                                           experiences in my lifetime that began when I was quite young.</p>

    Hello Chris,

    Indeed with the code that you provided it seems that text in the table looks different in the two browsers, however, simply setting width to the table holding the text fixes the issue that you describe:
    <table width="1200px">
