i have a problem with the way my webiste looks in different browsers. In firefox it looks fine, but when I view it in IE it looks really different, can anybody explain why this happens, and if there is a way to fix the problem?

Different browsers have different interpretations of the HTML "standard". The best you can do is ensure that your html and css code are W3C compliant (see w3c.org). Web developers / designers spend countless countless hours trying to rectify what you're trying to do ... get their sites cross-browser compliant.

Well I went to W3.org to see if the page was valid, my css code was, but my html wasn't. It generated a lot response, one is the doctype header. What is the purpose of the doctype header and which one whould I use? Where it listed all the problems it said if this was right then it might fix a lot of other problems, which too me did not seem like problems.
BTW if anyone wants to actually view the code and see what I am talking about for yourself, my site's at http://people.umass.edu/spullen/
