    Internet Explorer, Firefox and other browsers such as Opera use different rendering engines, which is why sometimes your website looks different. You can prevent this by following the (X)HTML standards and by validating every page of your website here: http://validator.w3.org/

    If it's valid HTML, it should work properly on all browsers.

    Also, JavaScript may not function 100% the same in all browsers, so be aware.

    pronunciation being on "should". not all browsers comply with W3 standards.

    Exactly. I wanted to say "will" but I corrected myself. Even though, it's still best practise to following W3 standards.

    It's just the way it is I'm afraid.

    I had that problem once and just couldn't find how to fix it. I just hired a developer via Rent-a-Coder and they fixed it for me :)
