Doubble check to make sure you have an open and close tag for each (<TABLE></TABLE><TR></TR>,<TH></TH>,<TD></TD>...) on all of the table's  also if you used and "s make sure you put both the ending and beginning quote.

check for missing <'s and >'s

Why not post your code, so we can look instead of guessing.

Indeed, my main guess goes out to the open and close tags in netscape. IE has something like an autocomplete codegenerator, so it doesn't care whether you write the </td> or not before the next <td>.

EVERY tag has to open and close in Netscape to be sure that it is gonna work.

You might want to try running the page through an html validator of some sort.  HomeSite has one (it gaves way too many warnings about unknown tags, but it'll catch nesting problems) www.allaire.com for a free demo.

HomeSite's validator is a _lint_ and not a validator.  It's a nice tool for getting some of the fluff out of your pages, but it's way too forgiving, and it doesn't care about DOCTYPEs.

To get a real validator to go through your documents, try either W3C's or HTMLHelp's.
