    I have been working on my site for the past day using Firefox and it looks great. Then I decided to look at it in Internet Explorer and it looks all weird with everything unformated. Can someone please help?!?

    Yep, all browsers are different.

    What sucks is that browser developers can't seem to build a browser that simply follows the W3C standards. I personally feel Firefox does the best job, but perfection seems far off.

    Then again, I see nothing wrong with a completely unstyled web.

    haha.... very true... if everyone just went plain, there would be no need for fancy browsers...

    You know why they don't follow W3C standards 100%? Some of those "standards" aren't worth following or they are vague to begin with - and following them to begin with is optional; it's not law or mandate despite the W3C's bizarre use of the word "illegal" to describe non-standard things.

    That said, one stands the best chance of having their stuff viewable as intended if one does stick close to "standards", though nothing is guaranteed obviously.
