All is perfect under IE ... but Firefox doesn't seem to like absolute positions inside absolute positions ...

Someone can help me to have the same thing under FF ?!

Thanx ...

There's not a lot we can do to help at the moment.

You have not given your html document a doctype. See this article from the forum index - how to section http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic6534.html
Then you need to validate the code - also from the how to section:http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic6533.html

When you try to validate the html, you will note it fails for a number of reasons and particularly on several divs whose name starts with a number. You have to use alpha characters i.e. a-z for all browsers to recognize them.

Without a doctype, IE is rendering your site in 'quirks mode' and is interpreting incorrect code in the way it thinks you mean. Firefox is following the incorrect code exactly and doesn't even see the divs that are named incorrectly.

It seems to be the general advice on the forum to design and test to get it right in Firefox first. If inconsistencies show up in IE then you can use 'hacks' to get around them.

See if the problems persist after you have chosen and added your doctype and have fixed the other items that invalidate your html and css. If the page still doesn't work in Firefox or if IE starts to play up, post again with validated code. Then it will give forum members a chance to identify and isolate any continuing or specific problems.
