IE6 vs. Firefox 1.51
In trying to write up my problem with text being centered by Internet Explorer 6 and not by Firefox 1.51 (See attachment), I think I have found the difficulty.
This is very old HTML code I am attempting to convert to CSS and get it to validate to HTML 4.01 loose standards. After that I can start on getting to XHTML. One step at a time. Using CSS for the variety of fonts now in the web site is difficult enough, plus some conversions of special characters to & codes.
<div align="center"> ... </div> surrounds the table with the body text starting with "Using my service..." and that is why the CSS for the body text:
font-size: 12px; font-family: Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, sans serif; color: black;
does not make the body text align left in IE6, but Firefox renders the body text as I expect.
Now for the cure for this problem. I hope that more CSS to replace the <div align="center"> ... </div> will cure the problem. Writing up the problem has helped me see the problem, but not the cure. Comments?
(I am off to experiment a bit.)
