Problem with my site in FF

P: 3
We have designed a website primarily based around tables in HTML. Now, it looks perfectly fine in Internet Explorer, but in Firefox, everything is totally distorted, and we were wondering what the problem was i.e. if it's the code, what part of the code. Or if there were any add-ons or facilities we could implement in to the website to prevent the problem.

Thank you for any help we receive.

The problem is IE. Yes, you said it works in IE, but IE is old, buggy and non-standard, while FF is a modern browser that does pretty good with standards. So, you probably designed and tested your site in IE, the bug, and then checked it out in FF. This is backwards to how it should be done. Always, always design and test using FF. Then check in IE so you can adjust for its bugs and quirks.

Another question. Are you using a proper doctype? If not, this opens another can of IE worms. So a link to the site is required to see what the problems may be.

Fix these errors and this error then see where we stand. Ignore the 'alt' errors for now.
