Just put your mouse cursor next to the Validation Summary, and align the line (<p> tag) using the toolbar alignment button.  An alternative is to create a CSS Class for the ValidationSummary.  I have done both (depends on the project).

Also, you can implement a <DIV> in the HTML view.  You can set the alignment using any of these methods.

In header of page...

text-align: center;

Now just set the CSSClass property of the datagrid to "dgStyle".

I just tried it in Mozilla and it worked.  Here is my example:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
            <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 7.0">
            <meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" content="Visual Basic 7.0">
            <meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">
            <meta name="vs_targetSchema" content="">
            <style type="text/css">
            .dgStyle { TEXT-ALIGN: center }
      <body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
            <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
                  <asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 16px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 18px" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                  <asp:TextBox id="TextBox2" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 17px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 49px" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                  <asp:TextBox id="TextBox3" style="Z-INDEX: 103; LEFT: 16px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 81px" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                  <asp:RequiredFieldValidator id="RequiredFieldValidator1" style="Z-INDEX: 104; LEFT: 184px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 24px" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Fill in textbox 1" ControlToValidate="TextBox1" ToolTip="Fill in textbox 1">!</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
                  <asp:RequiredFieldValidator id="RequiredFieldValidator2" style="Z-INDEX: 105; LEFT: 186px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 54px" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Fill in textbox 2" ControlToValidate="TextBox2" ToolTip="Fill in textbox 2">!</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
                  <asp:RequiredFieldValidator id="RequiredFieldValidator3" style="Z-INDEX: 106; LEFT: 187px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 87px" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Fill in textbox 3" ControlToValidate="TextBox3" ToolTip="Fill in textbox 3">!</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
                  <asp:ValidationSummary id="ValidationSummary1" style="Z-INDEX: 107; LEFT: 298px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 13px" runat="server" HeaderText="The following errors have occurred:" CssClass="dgStyle"></asp:ValidationSummary>
                  <asp:Button id="Button1" style="Z-INDEX: 108; LEFT: 219px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 73px" runat="server" Text="Button"></asp:Button>

You can do the italic/normal thing simply by putting HTML in your error messages.  For instance, in the ErrorMessage property of your validator put:

This is a <i>required</i> field!

I have also tried this in Mozilla successfully.  I am a regular user and preacher of Mozilla.  I only use other browsers at work.
