Netscape Viewing Problems

I am using FP 2003 to update a client's php based website ...

Viewing with IE has no issues ...

However with NS 7.1 and even 8.1.1 the text and pictures are changes in size and location ...

I am willing to simply place a disclaimer to view this web site with IE only, but thought
I would see if there is an easy method of seeing what the site will look right in any browser ...

Sounds like it could be a source code issue?  Or maybe a DOCTYPE?  Without seeing the parsed source code / URL, it is difficult to say

One of the pages is:

www.sullivanequipment.com/products/irt_drying/SpectraTek/index.php
but several others in the products do the same thing ... not all just some ???

Well you are using the DOCTYPE: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> but you don't havea lot of your tags closed.  Some of them are but a lot are not.  It looks almost like you did part of this one way and then decided to go another?

You might look at http://qa-dev.w3.org/unicorn/ to help you validate your code.  

You have:                               <div align="center">
                                    <p>&nbsp;</p>
                              </div>
                        <div align="center">
                                    <p>&nbsp;</p>
                              </div>
Which nothing is there.

You have  <td height="25" valign="middle" align="center"><a href="/index.php" id="nav"> and ids should only be used once on a page.

Firefox is probably rendering the same thing as the other browsers.

Before I could test this answer and see if I could fix the code, my workstation crashed and I have
not been able to get back to this issue.

I currently have an open question that was waiting for a motherboard
to arrive so I would not have to reinstall XP ... it arrived last night
but was bad !!! So I am back to fixing my workstation first.
