How to make my web application look correctly in mozilla, opera?

How to make my web application look correctly in mozilla, opera?

I have a Web application that uses CSS to handle my page layout(see css code)
At the top of my pages i have:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/tr/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

In IE 6-7 it looks great.....BUT in Mozilla, Opera....it looks like junk...basically it seems as though Mozilla is ignoring or does not recognize my Width 100%.

Below is the code which I beleive is the culprit since it handles most of my page formating.

Can someone assist me in converting this to be complaint with IE7, Mozilla, and Opera.
Or provide me with a tip to get it to look right...in other browsers without a complete redesign of my pages.

thanks in advance.

Is your application on public server? Where can it be seen?

I do not have a server to run asp on. But from what I can see it is problem with your HTML, not CSS. I will not go deep into your code, let's just try to solve the mystery.

Tag for table with id "Table6" has attribute width="100%". So I guess this is the one you want to be wider. BUT it is nested inside "Table13" which does not have any width specified. By default table is as wide as contents requires. Since width of your table of interest "Table6" does not have much of contents, parent table shrinks. Try to specify width of "Table6" in pixels OR set width of "Table13" to 100% to see the result.

Also, whenever you are in process of debugging your layout, it's always fun to have some temporary declarations in your CSS, e.g.:
table{border: thin solid red;}
