html formatting nightmare

Yesterday I switched from IE to firefox. Of course, it’s a major improvement, and already I’d be loath to switch back.

But imagine my horror when, as you do, I decided to see how my own website looks in the new browser. It was completely mangled! I haven’t figured out all the details yet, but it seems that firefox renders all sorts of things differently than IE…

So then I spent a miserable few hours re-designing the style-sheet and page structures and fonts and… In the end I’ve found something that ‘works’ for both browsers, but what a pain! So much for standards.

So, sincere apologies to anyone who looked at the website using firefox – you must have thought I was crazy! Guess I need to try Netscape now too…
