    Firefox not displaying correctly?

    Hi guys,
    I'm making a website for someone and I'm having a bit of difficulty making everything display correctly:

    http://www.makeagreatsite.com/webdes...evas/index.htm

    It looks perfectly fine and as I expect it to in internet explorer, but in firefox it looks crap.
    Normally it's the other way around.

    Can anyone explain this for me please?

    thanks

    regards
    steve

    Just figured it out guys.
    I had to use a master reset for everything.
    Should have thought of it earlier really.

    Lesson learned, use a master reset for everything if you want it to look the same right off the bat.

    thanks

    Every single element in a web page has some padding or margin, or borders applied by default.

    A master reset puts all elements' border, margin and padding to 0 so you can add what you want without having to think if other element's margin will affect the element you are working with.

    The simplest master reset is * {padding:0, margin:0, border:0}

    But this has proved to be quite slow compared to other master resets out there which specify element by element and sets them to 0. As an example, you can look at Eric Meyer's reset which is very complete, although you may not need that level of detail.
