    CSS being crazy...

    DIY_Lobotomy Level 1
      Hello. I created the following site, which looks exactly how it should in IE (tried two different versions):

      http://www.troma.com/IFTA/index.php

      In Firefox and Safari, however, it looks totally wrong (and looks the same in both of those browsers). The site is very light on HTML, and built mostly with CSS (but still very simple CSS, since I'm a novice in that department, so I can't imagine it would screw things up that much!)...

      Specifically, here's the inconsistencies:

      * The main navigation on the left should look like a filmstrip. I can either get it displaying properly on IE or on Firefox, but not both. In the current iteration of the site, I have the first navigation link ("Cinema") set to look properly in Firefox (shifted to the right in IE), and I have the rest of the navigation links set to look properly in IE (shifted to the left in Firefox).

      * On IE, the main text displays fine. On Firefox, there is a HUGE gap between the top paragraph and where the bulleted text starts. If I get rid of the "clear: both" on the "ul" tag, that fixes it on Firefox, but on IE, the bullets don't start underneath the picture. They start to the right of the picture.

      Here is a link to a zip of the site files (just one index page, the images folder, and one css style sheet). The whole thing is under 150kb, so it's VERY small. If anyone could take a look at this and let me know how I could fix it, it'd be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!!!

      EDITED!!! - I think I fixed the site. If anyone wouldn't mind checking it and letting me know if it's displaying properly for you, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

          It looks identical in Firefox and IE6. Can you say what is the problem...

              Please repost. Edits don't appear on the NNTP side of the forum.

                Ahhh - I'm sorry. I didn't know that. I actually thought that reposting a new topic would've been the more annoying thing to do. My bad!!!

                  Not to worry, just reply here with the original problem.
