My Site Looks Good In Ie But Horrible In Mozilla...why?

You have stumbled across one of the biggest complaints (that I've heard anyway) in the difference between IE and Mozilla. Mozilla adheres more closely to W3C standards...Micro$oft does their own thing. Yes, it makes designing sites rather difficult. I normally design for Mozilla and make slight modifications to ensure it looks reasonably close in IE. (I do go back and forth between the two quite a bit!) If you look closely, you'll find out that your web page cannot be an exact duplicate, but with a little tweaking, you'll get it awfully darn close.

I can't view your link, it seems to be incorrect.

 

However, you can go to http://validator.w3.org, input the correct URL, and it will spit out errors that make it invalid HTML. I've found that if I correct all the errors that the validator shows then the site will look pretty much the same in IE as it does in Mozilla.

Another thing to consider when developing your pages - the nice handy features a WYSIWYG editor adds are not always standard compliant. For instance, FrontPage used to add a lot of things that only work in IE. Perhaps some of the features added by Dreamweaver are also non-standard. It's usually best to stick with regular HTML/CSS/JAVA/etc. type things. The editors are getting much better but they still have some "glitches."
