Page looks COMPLETELY different in Browser than it does in DW

I have a site that looks great in dreamweaver, but when displayed in IE or FIREFOX, it's almost like there's no CSS at all, so I don't think it's something like leaving a bracket out.

There are two horizontal nav bars sandwiched together, have evenly spaced menu items, and background colors, but in IE they're all just smashed together to the left of the wrapper, and without background colors etc.  There are also several DIVS on the page (I'm currently working on the skeletal structure of the page) which I've created a border around to see how the different elements will look and those don't even show up.  Again, everything looks PERFECT in dreamweaver design view.  Thanks.

yep, the CSS is in the right place and the link reference is correct.  I can see the CSS formatting applied to the header, but everything else looks terrible.  There is even TEXT which isn't showing up when displayed in a browser.  Missing CSS is one thing, but actual HTML text not showing up?  THAT is weird.  By the way, the page is has a .PHP extension but i haven't added any PHP yet.

Ok Stergium something WEIRD just happened.  When i choose NOT to use the "show in browser" feature in DW and just double click on the file from windows explorer, it shows up correctly!

is it possible to upload a portion of the page  (if not all of it) for us to review it?

Bardo, oddly enough, SOME of the CSS was showing up, in the header section, but everything below that looked terrible.

Stergium, sure.  You want the HTML or CSS?
yes this is weird!
I'd suggest to check it through another browser also.
