The problem isn't with Encore, its with the monitors. All TV monitors have what's called "overscan", which means that the image on the screen is at least 10% enlarged. On older sets it can be as much as 20%.

To be sure your menu displays properly, design it so that all buttons and text fit within what post production people call "tv safe", a rectangle centered in your 720x480 frame that measures no larger than 648x432 (10% smaller than the whole frame).

Also, I don't know if this could be a factor, but only professional NTSC is 720x486. Consumer DV is 720x480.
