Here's my problem: http://www.coda-design.net/awc works fine in IE, but with Mac and in Firefox, the layout is completely screwed up. I'm not particularly adept at CSS, and this is one of the first things I've really attempted to do with it, so if anyone could help me debug it, that'd be awesome. I have the sinking feeling that I've made an incredibly simple and embarrassing error, but for the life of me I can't figure out what it is.

page address: http://www.coda-design.net/awc
CSS file: http://www.coda-design.net/awc/awc_style02.css

Thanks a thousand times over in advance.

Argh! Can't figure out layout problem in non-IE

Hi Coda,
Read up about the doctypes and quirks and standards modes.
There's been heaps posted here about it and there are some good links in the Useful CSS Links

Once you get the page into standards mode you may have messed up IE but it will be fairly easy to get all the modern browser to display how you want.

Hope that helps
