I have made a website based on this template. I have made a lot of changes in design on it and during the time of development never tested it in any other browser other than IE. BIG mistake!!!!
Now it's all out of place in Firefox. In IE it's, naturally, ok but in FF.... disaster!
After a short search I have found the <browserCaps> issue ( http://slingfive.com/pages/code/browserCaps/ ) which did not sole my problem one single bit.
Then I tested this original template in FF. And guess what? It looks great. Just like in IE. Now, how is that possible?
In my "editing" I have used a lot og controls but almost non of them where CSS connected.
My conclusion is that every single element on the page needs to have it's look and behavior based on the CSS !!! Only then the page will look the same in every browser.
Since I'm not an expert in html - css, but the "same look" is an important issue for me now, I would like a more experienced designer - developer to answer this question.

oooohhhhh... if, end if,.... no, no, no,.... i will not do this.
Thanks for the answer though. I didn't know about this conditional tag's. But writing this, in every control...no way.
And you are right: We should only design the style sheet once!
Any other comments, experiences....

that is a hassle
that's why I always take a template page and try to change it just as little as possible. of course if it looks same in FF and IE.
