:? I am practicing on some CSS code. It looks fire in firefox, but when I open the page in Internet Explorer the 'slogan region' shows on the facts page and not on the about page and and shows the bottom green color on another page. here is the css code first and then the index page[which is showing nothing.. and the FAQS page which shows it. Is the issue in the page or the CSS and could someone help point it out.

/* basic elements */

		    <li> <strong>I understand GASB 34 requires full accrual accounting. Will                       we estimate our accruals for preparation of our first and second                       Interim Reports? <br />
                  <br />
              </strong>No. While the new government-wide statements are prepared on                   the full accrual basis, accounting and budgeting for governmental                   funds are still on modified accrual. We anticipate that accounting                   and budgeting during the year, including interim reporting, will                   not change much. <br />
              <br />
		      <br />
            </li>
		    <li> <strong>Will local educational agencies (LEAs) have to keep two sets of books?</strong> <br />
                <br />
		      No. During the year, LEAs will still do their accounting and                   budgeting on the same basis as they do now, and at the end of                   the year, LEAs will still close their books and prepare their                   fund statements as they do now. Then they will also prepare the                   new set of government-wide statements on the full accrual basis. <br />
		      <br />
		      The California Department of Education (CDE) has modified its financial reporting software to help                   LEAs prepare the new statements on the full accrual basis. <br />
		      <br />
            </li>
		    <li><strong>I am trying to determine when I must implement GASB 34. My 1998-99                     revenues per my audit report do not match my 1998-99 revenues                     per the list of tentative implementation dates that CDE issued.                     Which should I use? <br />
                  <br />
              </strong>LEAs must base their implementation dates on their 1998-99 revenues                   as defined in paragraph 143 of GASB Statement 34 and as reflected                   in their audit reports. <br />
              <br />
		      An LEA's unaudited actual revenues per the J-200 report may differ                   from its revenues per its audit report due to audit adjustments                   and other reclassifications necessary to present its financial                   statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. <br />
		      <br />
		      CDE's list, based on unaudited actuals, was issued as a tentative                   and preliminary estimate of the number of LEAs that would implement                   each year. <br />
		      <br />
            </li>
		    <li><strong>Should encumbrances be interpreted as Accounts Payable in the                     full-accrual Statement of Net Assets?</strong> <br />
                <br />
		      No. Encumbrances and Accounts Payable are two different concepts. <br />
		      <br />
		      Accounts Payable are amounts owed for goods or services received                   by the end of the fiscal period. <br />
		      <br />
		      Encumbrance accounts are budgetary accounts used to show obligated                   portions of appropriations. During year-end closing, encumbrances                   are liquidated and encumbrance account balances are returned to                   the unappropriated fund balance. <br />
		      <br />
		      Encumbered amounts might be accrued as Accounts Payable, but                   only if the goods or services for which the encumbrances were                   set up were received by the end of the year. <br />
		      <br />
            </li>
		    <li><strong>Will GASB 34 affect the amount of reserves LEAs are required                     to have?</strong> <br />
                <br />
		      No. Per the Criteria and Standards, reserve levels are based                   on budgeted General Fund expenditures, transfers out, and uses.                   General Fund budgets will continue to be prepared on the modified                   accrual basis as before. <br />
		      <br />
            </li>
		    <li><strong>Why do we have to implement GASB 34? What are the consequences                     if we do not? <br />
                  <br />
              </strong>LEAs are required to prepare their financial statements in accordance                   with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Conformity                   with GAAP allows comparability among LEAs. <br />
              <br />
		      A specific consequence of not reporting in the new model is that                   an auditor may not issue an unqualified opinion on financial statements                   not prepared in accordance with GAAP. The American Institute of                   Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has advised that statements                   not prepared according to the provisions of GASB 34 normally should                   result in an adverse opinion. </li>
