Problem displaying website in Firefox

Hi,

We have a website from a customer of ours:
http://www.denbraven.be/

Now, we can open the website in IE and everything is okay but when we open it in Firefox, everything is messed up.
We already configured that he needs to open the website in compatibility mode and we told to display the IE6 version of the CSS.

Does anyone know what can be the problem and how to fix?

thx

If your webpage is designed-coded to fit in IE6 specifications then the problem is clear. IE6 doesn't comply with W3C specifications and so programming a site to make it work well on this browser means that it will display horribly almost in every other browser (at least in W3C compliant ones).

You will need to code specific CSS stylesheets for other browsers different than IE6 and, maybe, even redesign your site.

I have to agree with Bardobrave's comment.  NEVER EVER code for a legacy browser first unless you have a very specific audience/reason to do so.  Always code with compliance and validation in mind.  You should code for the modern browsers first, then test backwards to the non-compliant browsers.  

Start with FF, IE 8/9, Safari and Chrome, then work your way back to IE 8, 7 & 6 if necessary.

You should also start with some type of CSS reset to level the playing field with browser defaults.

1st things first, remove the meta tag that is emulating IE 7

<meta content="IE=EmulateIE7" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible">

Let's see where that puts us
