Ok well it should look the same in IE and mozilla, if certain things arent working in mozilla like links and such then your header for your css is wrong. And as for the doctype i wouldnt know because i never have seen a use for them.
Doctypes are used for validation purposes via www.w3c.org. Which is a great way in my opinion, to check your work and make your work look more professional to the web designing community. Im not sure that I know what you're talking about when you say "css header". I expect that yoy mean type="text/css" and im pretty sure that that's not the problem. Thanks for your input.

Here's a cleaner version of it. I played around with the background image being at 1px high, and I wasn't fond of it, hence the boder version. Also note that using 10px can cause some major issues because 10px is on the smaller side and px units can't be resized by IE users. You also need to look into getting some better colors.
Thanks alot for your help, i still would like to keep the border i had with the hr tho, because that effect cannot be created in ie so i had to use an image. If possible, I would like to know why this wont work. When i enter the following into my preexisting code, the size of the actual .hr element is visible, but i have already specified the height.

That doesn't make any sense to me. Are you talking about your original code, or the one I gave you? Do you mean the .hr class you made, or the <hr> tag I used? To get a <hr> tag to use color correctly, you have to define the color for the color and background-color as the same to have it work in multiple browsers. You then define the height and borders as needed.
Alright, this is pissing me off -- a lot.
IE renders dotted borders fine as long as the width is above 1px. Granted, this is not full support, but it's more than people give credit for. Also, at about 2px when going down, IE screws up the dashed border.
So, as long as you're above 1px in width, IE renders dotted borders just fine. As long as you're over 2px in width, IE renders dashed borders fine.
