Different in Moxilla and IE

I am rewriting my web sit in www.snowfisher.com

It looks the way I want (so far) in Internet Explorer. However, in
Mozilla and Netscape there is unexplained (to me) space above the logo
that makes the site look bad.

Can anyone explain what I am doing wrong and how I get the three
browsers to display the same?

Well deigning for IE and then trying to get it to work in other browsers
is the wrong approach.

I don't see a difference. I would dump the layout table though...

I removed the original post as I solved the problem. It was a margin
issue.

I do not see any extra space above the logo (the prisms, yes?) in IE6 or
Firefox v2.0.0.5. There is a difference in text size and leading...
You are using px and pt for font sizes. px is bad because the text
cannot be resized by IE when the text is too small to read. pt is bad
because there is no way for a browser to determine how many pixels a point
represents on any given monitor.
The problems with pt is obvious in the main header, #topheading.
Different browsers guess at different values for the text size.
Change your text size dimensions to use ems or %.

Why are you replacing standard markup with custom styles? In particular
replacing <hx>, block elements, with <span>, inline elements? E.g.,
<h1>text</h1is replaced with <span class="similartoh1">text</span><br>.
It is simply a waste. Style the markup elements directly rather than
reduce the semantic content.

body { ...; font-size: small; }
Why would you do that to me? It makes the text difficult to read,
especially given the textured background.

.minilink { font-size: 50%; ...; }
That is just absurd. The text is truly unreadable.

Try to specify padding and margins of topdiv2 and topheading.

Trying to get exactly the same layout everywhere is the first step to evil.
Use a PNG, if you like fixed layouts.

http://www.snowfisher.com/ contains:
<p id="topheading">
[...]
<p>
<span class="similartoh1">We specialize in the following
services </span<br>
<span class="similartoh2">Optical Engineering</span<br>
I don't get it.
Why cannot you use h1, h2 and h3 ?
<tr>
<th class="center" colspan="2">1220 Morehead Court, Ann Arbor,
Michigan 48103</th>
</tr>
This is not a semantically correct table heading.
How can there be a heading on a row that has no data?
<liDesign from standard <br>
components </li>
Why a <brhere? Are not automatic line break sufficent?
font-size: 50% is hardly legible (even with a good eyesight) with browsers
that don't impose a minimum font size. Fortunately, it is relative to the
user default, so it can be enlarged. font-size: 80% or font-size: small
would be more legible.

I fear that FrontPage had a negative effect on your design style.
You can improve your style.

Removed the original post? What do you mean? This is Usenet not a
website...this post is still on the server...
It was a margin
issue.
I'd still dump the layout table...

Look at his messages headers. He is a google grouper!

I'm not sure, but google groups may offer a service to delete an article
from their archives (probably only for articles you've posted through
google groups account).

Or maybe, there's an option to "killfile" an article, and Helpful
killfiled his own article.

Or maybe he read RFC-1036 and sent a message whose body is "cancel
<message-id>" (RFC-1036 3.1)
http://ietf.org/rfc/rfc1036.txt

Of course, the original server as well as all other servers, must accept
the cancel message, remove the file from their local storage, and accept
to forward it to other servers.

It won't ever have any effect on end users who've downloaded the message.

It probably won't have any effect on Usenet archive servers such as ...
google groups!

Anyway, this cancel message is probably accepted by very few servers only.
