    Which One?

    I am using CSS and DIVs successfully for the first time and I would like to know which I should be more concerned with... How it looks in IE, or how it looks in FireFox?

    Honestly, both.

    Most the browsing public uses IE.

    Hmm hence my conflict. My little test site looks perfect in FireFox but parts of it just seem off in IE. Should I just deal with this?

    Internet Explorer still has hands down the largest user base...Last statistics I had seen had in a 88%, Firefox has since came on strong so I am not sure what they are today...Either way I recommend building towards IE and hacking your CSS for Firefox. You might try browser detection with JS and load a different CSS file depending on the browser.

    i think the other way around build for FF and then hack for IE, y do u think there are so many for IE, but i have found that if i use valid css, i can get a layout looking the same in both browsers, i haven't had to use any hacks at all yet, but the most common would be the "box model hack"

    More people use IE, but Firefox is taking over more and more now.
