Asp.net web app issues with Firefox/Safari

I have added the BrowserCaps in web.config file but it did not do anything
in the prsentation of the web page. Is there anything else to do to have
Firefox render the page like IE?

Write w3c compliant xhtml. Firefox is not perfect, but it tries hard to be
standards compliant (although it sometimes gets it wrong). Many standard
Web design/programming books recommend developing for FF in the first
instance and then modifying your code to make it work in IE (using the Web
to find the necessary hacks). That's what we do. We don't use any
IE-specific controls: only HTML controls with the runat="server" attribute.

Alternatively, upgrade to 2.0

With 2.0, it seems as if MS has finally acknowledged that there are people
using web browsers OTHER than IE on Windows.
