    Please fix your XHTML errors and remove the <font> elements.

    This is a bit old, but much of what it says is relevant -- What's wrong with the FONT element?
    What should you use instead of the FONT element? Beyond the FONT tag: Practical HTML text styling

    You need to make the float containers fully contain their floated children.

      Yeah, some of those XHTML errors could very well be causing more standards compliant browsers like Firefox to not render the page the way you are intending.

            Are you referring to <table>s? You can use them -- when it's appropriate.

            What are tables really for?

            Just because web browsers (HTML parsers) can guess at what you mean when they encounter an error doesn't mean you should rely on that. What happens when different browsers decide you meant different things?
