    I have encountered none of the problems I've seen on this page with my
    firefox download. However, my web page created with Homesite 4.5 and style
    sheets -- doesn't look right in Firefox since it doesn't seem to recognize
    my style sheet commands -- specifications for size and color of fonts,
    using all caps for certain phrases. The page looks as specified in
    Internet Explorer -- but I would like readers of the web page to see
    the page as it's supposed to look.
    Anyone who has both programs installed can see the difference by clicking on or any of the pictures leading a feature in which
    the title should be in 3 colors and large not small and all black.
    I know there is something about chrome editing but this is beyond my
    expertize and I wonder if there are any people around who can do
    this -- hopefully without my having to reload all my pages.

    IE is much more forgiving when it comes to CSS and HTML errors. Firefox is
    more demanding, and requires that every period and brace be exactly where it
    belongs. So, check your web pages for even the slightest errors because IE
    will forgive you, but FF will not.

    I corrected some misspellings but I don't think this is a case of Foxfire
    not being forgiving about spaces and such-- but simply not recognizing font
    size and color specifications and span commands. I could upload my
    cu.css file if someone would be willing to look at it and see what in it
    annoys foxfire -- so that span class commands and font sizes and colors
    are ignored????

    I should add to previous message that there's something called chrome
    editor in firefox which might deal with this but I haven't a clue as to
    how to use this -- I know where it is-- but don't understand it.

    I had a small web site that looked fine in IE, but broken in FF. I ran a
    validate & found quite a three CSS and HTML mistakes. IE still displayed the
    page properly, but FF didn't.

    Font sizes and specifications have to be in the EXACT format to be
    acceptable, a misspelling or error here would result in Firefox
    ignoring the specification completely.

    To you, <123> may 'mean' the same as (123) or < 123>, just a
    'slight' difference in format. But to a computer, they are entirely

    The 'meaning' of you, hu, hugh, hue, yu, and even u depends entirely
    on the context and how they are used. You, as a human adult, with
    experience, might be able to figure out hue said it or u said it
    to mean the same as you said it but that simply shows you how far
    in advance a human mind is over that of a computer.

    Another example

    httpL// this is not a link but looks like 1 isnt

    a computer or program is a slave to the parameters and format of the
    page as specified. An 'error' that to the human mind is overcomeable
    (such as in the above example) is simply NOT the same to the program

    Errors and mispellings ARE very important
