Help with CSS and Firefox (3 posts)

    I designed this site using a CSS template and customized it. Overall it works great. However the footer jumps up a third of the way when viewing in Firefox (and possibly a browser used by Mac users) but works fine in Internet Explorer. I keep working on this but since my experience is low to moderate I am against a brick wall here. I use Frontpage to create and modify the design ...it also does not of course present the problem there either. Please help :)

    That's a mistake. Use only plain text editors, no wysiwyg editors.

    When display issues - always try to validate your site (it might not solve all the problems but it gets closer)

    Also, you should pick a less demanding document type than "Strict".

    I'm using firefox on a mac and don't see an issue.

    Validating is a good idea.

    There are some unconventional things going on so a transitional doctype will work better.

    If you could post a screenshot of what you want and what you see in firefox that would help.

    One thing I see: there is a table on the bottom whose only purpose seems to be to add a line. You could take out the table and add a style to the footer:
    border-top:1px solid #999;

    adding a margin top will increase the spacing between the body and the footer. Padding will adjust the spacing between the top border and the footer content.
