    Ok getting better but need some help on this page.

    ok i have 2 problems. thanks to the board i have managed to get this far. i can easily do all of this in HTML but i am trying to get more into styles. here is the webpage in question: http://www.adaware.net/ede/indexcss.html

    Question #1: Why does this look so wacked in FireFox but ok in IE? If i wanted to use the combination of CSS and standard HTML with rows and coumns? Is doing a combination of both even possible? i am assuming i need to make a container and align this with the bottom of my type div tags and somehow place the html inside there. as you can see i am having spacing issues on IE but on firefox its completely messed up.

    Question 1A: Given i didnt want to touch any more code, and wanted to use the css and the standard html, how could i get this to align properly in both IE and Firefox like this? http://www.genuineedelbrock.com/ which was very easy to do using tables?

    Question 2: i would like to get this page to be 100% using CSS like i did the top portion, if you look at the code you can see the bottom portion is just using rows and columns, how can i achieve this? using spans or divs etc? and have it work in firefox?

    THANKS SO MUCH!
