    Hope someone can help.....it doesn't look like this is a typical question
    within this news group!
    I'm revamping an existing web site built in Front Page with Expression Web.
    I chose Expression because I liked the CSS capability. After building just
    the header in Expression I published the page, and viewed in it IE and
    Firefox. I guess I shouldn't really be surprised, but IE displays just
    fine. FireFox on the other hand does not display as built! I search MSN
    for a workaround and I found that they suggest using TABLES - yes, TABLES to
    display various elements.
    There must be another way to assure that the pages I build will display as
    well in FireFox and they do in IE!
    The page can be viewed at www.shopmaggiesworld.com/index2a/htm
    Appreicate any help I can get!

    newsgroup which is on the news.mozilla.com server.

    Better to ask at one of these:

    alt.html
    comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets

    Specify what version of IE you're testing with.

    Specify the correct URL: http://www.shopmaggiesworld.com/index2a.htm

    And be prepared to be told that Frontpage is a terrible tool to build
    HTML pages with.

    The URL should be http://www.shopmaggiesworld.com/index2a.htm :)

    The page looks the same to me in both Firefox and Internet Explorer.
    Here's screen captures:

    What are you finding wrong about it?

    Here, IE6 displays different layouts depending on screen width

    IE6 #1: http://i18.tinypic.com/85pqd50.png tagline under logo
    IE6 #2: http://i19.tinypic.com/8bysrns.png tagline at right of logo & partly hidden
    IE6 #3: http://i19.tinypic.com/7y6u1kl.png tagline at right of logo



    Firefox displays the same layout regardless of screen width

    FFX #3: http://i2.tinypic.com/7y307ig.png

    What do you want to see?
    (a) Firefox to change layout like IE6 does?
    (b) Firefox to perfectly centre the tagline under logo,
    like IE6 #1 but unlike IE6 #2 & #3?
