Hello, I just checked my page (http://www.iriedog.com/about.html) in IE and Firefox (latest versions)
It looks ok in IE but in Firefox, the footer section is all messed up. I would like it to look more like it does in IE. I've tried all sorts of positioning but it still doesn't look right.
Also, why does the margin-top (70 px) in the header section look different in IE than in Firefox, it appears accurately in Firefox.

Thanks!

I already checked the CSS in the W3C validator, it's fine. I also ran an error check in Dreamweaver- no errors. :?

thanks for your help!!!

Don't trust Dreamweaver's

Don't trust Dreamweaver's validator, the standard one is the W3C valistaor and it tosses up seven errors, which you should fix up.

However your main problems appear to come from a misunderstanding of how floats work, exacerbated by the fact that IE is misleading you by doing things wrong. So I suggest you read Gary Turner's Article about floats.

thanks, still need help though

:ohdear: Thank you so much for the reply. I fixed the XHTML errors and it now validates fine. I also read the article you suggested and fixed my "float" problem using the tips from the http://css.maxdesign.com.au/floatutorial/ linked from Gary Turner's article.
This helped immensely. But now I'm still having the FOOTER problem. I want my background image in my footer to appear BELOW the final textbox and image. My code does have the "textbox3" id as a child to the "footer" id, so why doesn't it appear aligned in Firefox? And my "footerlinks" appear off to the side instead of below the footer.

Can you please help me some more? Thank you so much in advance.

:bigoops:

never mind,

I just went over "Big John's" {clear: both;} explanation from your original link to Gary Turner's article. It appears that the problem is resolved!!!

Thanks SOOOO much for everything!
