Looks great in IE, Firefox not displaying right...

5 New Member
I have created a web site for my paintball team and i'm having trouble. I am rather new at html so please bare with me. The site www.portcitymil itia.150m.com displays just like I want it to in IE. However when you look at this same page in firefox the links and text are below the image unlike IE with it being on the image. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I am trying to get the text and links to lay on the image which I have in a table so that the image will resize no matter what resolution people are using. Heres my code to the above web site.

<title>Port City Militia</title>
<meta name="descripti on" content="Port City Paintball Team.">
<body bgcolor="black" text="white">
<p align="center"> <font size=3><b>There have been times in history where a few good men have been counted on
to help a cause, outside of the traditional miltary role. This now holds true for paintball.</b></u></p>

The problem is IE. You are missing a doctype which puts IE into quirks mode, and then you probably used IE to originally design the site and expected other, more modern browsers to fall in line. Never, ever use any version of old, buggy, non-standard IE to design a site.

In addition, you have 35 html errors.

1) Read the article about doctypes under Articles above.
2) While there, read the article about validation.

Hi, I've run into a problem with IE 6 vs. Mozilla when displaying a completely CSS positioned page, and was wondering if any resident CSS guru might quickly be able to find the problem(s). Thank you. In IE, the page looks how I want it to look (picture below): www.sunbadgeco.com/sunmetal/ie.jpg In Mozilla Firefox, somehow it's not quite right (pic below): www.sunbadgeco.com/sunmetal/mozillafirefox.jpg

Hello! For some reason, Internet Explorer is displaying one CSS-layer on my website http://home.arcor.de/nilsweisensee/links.html slightly differently than Firefox, Opera, Konqueror and Safari are displaying it. The menu with link categories in the upper-right corner of the grey box is positioned 10 pixels to the right by IE, while all the other browsers position the menu a bit more left. With IE, the menu overlaps with the border of...

Please bear with me as I am new to both Firefox and CSS. I have browsed through a number of groups looking for similar problems to my own but can't find a definitive answer.

I am designing a table-based menu. I want the table to take up the entire screen, as it is separating my banner image and the beginning of the text. Anyways, as you can see, I used the "width:100%" attribute. But in Firefox, this shows the table pushed right 0.5em, so I added a "margin-left:-0.5em" attribute, which makes it look great in Firefox; in IE, however, it shows the table ending 0.5em left of the right side of the window, and the table...

On a site I'm writing at the moment, I am using the <abbr> tag to expand on some acronyms (I'd use the <acronym> tag but I understand that's not really legitimate any more) within the body of the text. While Internet Explorer and Opera both correctly display the "title" attribute of the <abbr> tag as a pop up on mouseOver, it is only visible in Firefox through the use of the "Properties" right-click option. Is Firefox behaving as designed?...

Hi, My website is a joomla powered website: http://www.pradhanmanish.com.np and i am loading a .php file from another server and displaying it on my website as a module. While Firefox displays it correctly with a transparent background, IE shows a big white box instead of being transparent. The problem lies in the front page at the right side of the home page. Can anyone please suggest some fix for this problem?? Thanks in advance.

When viewing my page (siuehockey.net) in Firefox, it's setup how I want it to look. When i viewed it using IE, the menu at the top runs into the "Cougar Hockey/cougarhockey.net" at the top left. It's leaving off two menu selections: Contact, and Cougar History, which when loading the page get covered up by the banner picture. Here's the CSS for the site: body { margin: 0; padding: 0; background: #000000 url(images/img01.jpg)...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
