IE O.K., Firefox a Mess

My site is pretty in IE 6.0.2600 and Maxthon 1.2 but a mess in Firefox 1.0.

Specifically, Firefox loses whole rows in my tables and even a large slice from my homepage graphic.

Any ideas what's going on here?

Does your HTML code validate? It could be that there is a mistake in your table cell coding that IE is ignoring and which is breaking the page in Firefox.

Yes, my pages validated perfectly.

Next question - validated to which DTD?

At a guess, your code is built to accomodate the non-standard box model that IE uses to render a layout, and therefore breaks on a more standard rendering engine such as FireFox's Gecko.

To transitional. Any suggestions?

Do you think it's time to dump the tables and go for the CSS positioning?

Depends on what you are using the tables for

Could you perhaps give us a small sample of the code you are using for a table that's not working?

I've fixed it.

What was it? Turns out I had eliminated an all-white slice of my image (at 2:30 a.m.) and didn't enter a bgcolor tag to the cell. IE filled the cell with white while Firefox did what's right and left it transparent.

This means that I'll probably push off an all CSS remake of my site.
