My site consistently works fine in IE but when I try to view it in FireFox, some things mess up. It seems that FireFox is ignoring the styles I have set.

Any help would be appreciated

my site is:
http://www.austinr.com
and also
http://www.austinr.com/joevid

thanks

works in IE, screws up in FireFox

No offense intended... but you have some problems that just might be causing FF to misbehave...
No document type
Quite a few syntax errors in your css

try validating both the html and css and then see what happens in FF

no offense taken...

I figured it was my css, but I really don't know what about it is the problem. Some examples would be really helpful.

mistaa304 - rmfed has just told you what to do: use a doctype (google the word if you don't know what it is), and then validate your HTML and CSS before you ask for more detailed help (google that too if you need to). Help us to help you!

to be a little more specific, run your url through here: http://validator.w3.org/ ... this will tell you where any errors are in your html, if any Wink. and then, run your url through http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/ ... this will do the same sort of check on your css... both will show you line by line where any syntax errors are in your pages.

hope this helps!
