IE and other browsers do not interpret HTML/CSS commands the same way.  You'll run into this a lot.  While IE7 was substantially better than its predecessors, there are many cases in which you'll be left with either entirely different pages or forced to do a hack.  Your options are the following:

1) Create your page so that it detects what browser is being used and presents HTML/CSS appropriately for that particular browser.
2) Design your page so that Firefox/Opera render it correctly, then adjust what doesn't work in IE separately (if you do it the other way, you'll constantly have issues).

The best suggestion would be for you to browse the internet for the many sites which detail/explain where IE7 and Firefox won't render the same way and see their suggested solutions, especially if you are getting heavily into CSS usage.

As Adam said, IE7 is less standards compliant than other browsers, so get used to it displaying some things differently.

I recommend Adam's second suggestion.

Here are some of the sites Adam was referring to:
