You are using html but also Xhtml end tags. Remove the slash from /> on many of your elements.

Also, you are using the transitional doctype. What are you transitioning from? New pages should always use the strict doctype.

Validate your html and css and fix those errors.

checking that helped a few things
i also did some more searching around with IE compatibility and added some tags such as:

#header {
position: relative;
float: left;
top: 5px;
width: auto;
height: auto;

html>body #header {
position: absolute;
left: 410px;
top: 5px;
width: 400px;
height: 180px;

This allowed the pictures to come up on both FF and IE. Apparently its a glitch with reading the absolute positoning I think.

As for the transitional- I dont even actually know what it means, but ill change it
