Welcome to the forum.
What your developer has done is edit the output files rather than the source files. Because of the version differences he would not have been able to edit the source files. I wonder if you gave him those anyway or just the output?
Regardless you are where you are. I do hope you have a backup of the project from before you copied the edited output files back into the source. It will be easier to start from there and have your developer advise the changes by some other means. Otherwise you have a bit of an unholy mess to sort out.
There is a way of cleaning up the output files if you really have to but given your experience level, you may not want to go there. If you have no choice, then Rick Stone's site has an excellent article on the matter and I can let you have the link later. Not to hand right now.
When you generate your output, RH, creates two versions of the CSS, one for IE, and one for Firefox, that is the ns one you are seeing.
Your source project CSS should be the only one you need.
BTW. Tell your developer you won't mess with his code if he doesn't mess with your help. :-)
Welcome to the community.
As far as I've been able to tell, RH creates the "ns" style sheets for Netscape or Mozilla-based browsers. Somehow, that style sheet automatically gets used in browsers like Firefox, but in my experience, RH doesn't always keep the two style sheets synched. I'm really not sure at what point the "ns" versions get created. I'm sure you could delete the extraneous style sheets, but you may find that they'll reappear at some point.
I hope this helps,
At least you have learned the value of backups early on.
Maybe your developer can recall the topics he edited so that you can do some copy and paste from his topics.
