    CSS IE fine not Firefox,safari, etc Please help

    sotota

      Hi,

      I am new and learning. I build a website and online the CSS works fine with IE (windows), but Firefox( windows,mac) and Safari (mac) are  not using the css.  I did run the browser compatibility check in Dreamweaver and says it's ok, not issues. 

       

      Checking the mozillaezine I saw people reporting the same issue and the members of that forum are saying that it happens because the "doctype declaration" used is not standard. They say "Make sure you use a DOCTYPE that causes the page to be rendered in standard mode in all browsers".

       

      sounds good, but  I have no idea about it, I don't know if I can use the declaration they are advising or not, I am learning this thing trial/error basis I guess.

       

      I did use a Dreamweaver template  to create my template page - the doctype declaration was there - . I did use my template page then to develop the site.  the declaration I am using is :

      <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

       

      Other site advised to change the <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
      for <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8;FF=3;OtherUA=4" /> I did change it and nothing happens.

       

      the mm_BibleGarden.css link is set relative to the document, as it was the linking in the original template.

      <http://web.me.com/stmarks/PalmBeachBibleGarden/Index.html>  redirects to http://web.me.com/stmarks/PalmBeachBibleGarden/Index.html

       

      Could you please help me? I am really tired trying to fix and learn myself what to do to fix it.

       

      Ta,
