Hello to everybody, i am new in this forum.
I am developing a wordpress blog, and i am testing it with internet explorer browser: it works well.
But now that i am checking it also on mozilla firefox, i see many layout problems..
I think this is why browsers are processing CSS in different ways, but i don't know how.

There's someone who can help me please?

You can see by yourself differences between two layouts, blog URL is http://www.sierrasnowboard.it.

Thanks.

You've got that backwards, test in Firefox and other modern browsers then hack for IE.

Umm, go set min-width on IE6 and let me know how it works out for you without using any hacking, conditional comments, etc.

I disagree with hacking altogether. I feel conditional comments are best.

C'mon guys. There is

C'mon guys. There is absolutely nothing wrong with well conceived hacks. They may be elegant, àla IE's doubled float margin fix, or brutish, such as conditional comments.

[jargon]:
hack [very common]

  1. n. Originally, a quick job that produces what is
    needed, but not well.
  2. n. An incredibly good, and perhaps very time-consuming, piece of work that produces exactly what is needed.
  3. vt. To bear emotionally or physically. "I can't hack this heat!"
  4. vt. To work on something (typically a program). In an immediate sense: "What are you doing?" "I'm hacking TECO." In a general (time-extended) sense: "What do you do around here?" "I hack TECO." More generally, "I hack `foo'" is roughly equivalent to "`foo' is my major interest (or project)". "I hack solid-state physics." See {Hacking X for Y}.
  5. vt. To pull a prank on. See sense 2 and {hacker} (sense 5).
  6. vi. To interact with a computer in a playful and exploratory rather than goal-directed way. "Whatcha up to?" "Oh, just hacking."
  7. n. Short for {hacker}.

Numbers one and two are particularly apropos definitions of "hack" as we use them.

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Agree.

Until IE gets it's act together and joins the community instead of acting like a pop-punk band hacks will be useful.

What we dislike, and partly

What we dislike, and partly why the word 'Hack' has bad connotations, is the use of them to correct errors that are in reality user induced or simply problems able to be worked around as long as one has experience, 'filters' is a nicer expression when it's able to be applied.

It's do-able! I'd put an empty div somewhere out if the way, with a fixed width.
it's do-able. I wouldn't do it. But it's do-able.

Then that would be a hack as defined by Gary previously.
Since you are not using the property "min-width" but instead finding a way around it. Therefore producing what is needed, but as you mentioned you wouldn't use it, therefore, not well.

Thanks for proving my point, I appreciate it.

It's a shame sarcasm doesn't work out so well over the intertubes.
