I know this could become involved, so I'm putting 500 points up right away.

I developed a site using an open-source template a few years ago.  At the time, I used IE.  The site works perfectly in IE.  It sucks in Firefox.  I have been able to fix almost all of the layout issues I've encountered, but cannot figure out why the last layer I include as a footer displays incorrectly in Firefox.

The address of the site is rji.alfred.edu

An example of the code (from index.asp) looks like this (I have checked the included files and found no issues with those, but could paste their contents as well if it would help):
