People...

I had a Microsoft MVP tell me (concerning how different my website looks in Mozilla & FireFox...as compared to IE):

I'm not sure it'll ever look correct, without dropping the old version of Dreamweaver you're using. It simply creates badly mangled, marginal HTML which will not validate. Hard to read HTML, even simple layouts like this can cause problems for the browser trying to render the layout, since it has no idea what you actually intend it to look like.Thing is...even tho my site was created in DW MX...I actually have v2004 & hardly ever use it.

So my question is...if I open up each of my site's pages in 2004...& validate them...the errors show up under Results. Is there a way to then repair/correct each of the errors in v2004 (to 2004 standards)?

Thanks,

MX is not really that old and has nothing to do with that display error. Its a browser nuisance not a dreamweaver issue.

looks like a line height should fix the FF prob if that text is in a <p> tag.
ur background image is fixed for 1280 i presume. check out my screen shot
