    Hi
    I'm a newbie and I know this question has been posted before, but on looking at the answers I still can't figure out what's going wrong.

    The site displays perfectly in Safari, IE & Chrome but for some reason things get knocked out of alignment in Firefox.

    I'm a designer not a coder so I don't usually do this but decided to have a go as it's a really simple site and I want to learn - so please excuse the dodgy code as I'm learning.

    Site is: :: Fly Creative | Graphic Design | Cape Town | South Africa ::

    I know when running it through validator it says no Doctype on page.
    But when I add Doctype it makes matters worse.

    What Doctype should I be using?

    I tried:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

    and:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    And:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML>

    All knocked out formatting.

    Could anyone shed some light on this please?

    Thanks a lot

    The site is a nice looking one, but you really need to get away from tables and do your layout in divs, with CSS to position them.

    I suggest you look up some basic tutorials in CSS and start to re-code the site.
