Weird characters everywhere when website is viewed in Firefox but does not appear in HTML

When this page here is viewed in Firefox

http://www.allflexinc.com/

Strange characters fill the entire page and none of this appears in the file and it looks completely fine in Internet Explorer.  This happened after I made made changes to the menu file using Expression Web; attached is the HTML behind the menu file.

Hi there;

weird characters in your link: dtd line...

I removed dtd line...

I removed </td> and following 112th line td and tr since they have no corresponding tags...(or i missed them)

I edit the line 82...seems you add that line to get rid of that weird look...
objMenus.createNewMenu("DesignGuide");

in your snippet, you have problems with line 82...objMenus not defined through FireBug i have seen that...

Modified code is attached as snippet...

Best regards...

if so:
<!DOCTYPE>

A DTD defines the elements and attributes and their relationship in a document. Technically, no HMTL structure that isnt defined in DTD cannot reside in that document. But you can leave it...

Have you tried changing your charset to UTF-8 or iso-8859-1

I would put your doctype on there and then go to

http://validator.w3.org/ 

This will tell you all that is wrong with your code! Resolve them issues and you'll be onto a winner!

Using the code in your question gave me 7 Errors and 1 warning,
