The only thing I really see that looks different is the border. The reason its different is that you're using Internet Explorer specific HTML in your page that Firefox won't read (because Firefox is a much more "correct" browser than IE). I suspect that this is because you're using Frontpage to create your site. (And we know that Frontpage and IE are both spawned by Microsoft)
bordercolorlight="#FD0000" bordercolordark="#FF0000" bordercolor="#0000EE"
Firefox won't listen to that.
The easiest way to specify a border on something is to use a bit of CSS. Ideally you would have an external stylesheet that would set out all these things (like what the border colour of this box should be, what your font sizes and styles should be, everything to do with the graphic layout of your page, basically) and then you'd put a little piece of code into the head of your page that says "use this stylesheet".
The quick and dirty way to do it, though, is to delete all that "bordercolor" stuff from your <table> tag and write this in there instead:
- Code: Select all
style="border: 3px solid #FF0000"
You can also specify different colors for the different sides of your box by going like this:
- Code: Select all
style="border-left: 3px solid #ff0000; border-top: 3px solid #000000; border-right: 1px dotted #999999; border-bottom: 5px dashed green;"
If you want to know more about CSS and HTML in general (could be a good idea) then I recommend checking out the lessons at this site:
The dude knows what he's talking about. And in future, you should be testing your websites in Firefox rather than IE, since future versions of IE should begin to get more "correct" and stop using these proprietary codes, but until this happens you're best to test on a browser that is already at this point.
