Ah, web development. A love, and a curse. Cross-browser compat. has always been an issue with browsers interpreting css differently. The best thing to do is to stick with the w3 standards and even then it’s still going to be weird. So you might have to write CSS for different browsers. Another thing is to use a CSS framework. I haven’t used them because I stopped doing web dev in general, but these look promising: http://www.blueprintcss.org/ http://960.gs/
I’ll back secureseven in saying stick to w3 standards. It’s good they give a ton of examples and show what browsers they’re compatible with – you could take this into consideration when developing.
The advice that I’ve always been given (and use with decent success) is to design for Firefox and then adjust to IE. You can make additional CSS entries for IE using syntax that is illegal and ignored by FF to make any adjustments necessary. I started out doing web design and quickly abandoned it because I couldn’t tolerate this garbage. I can’t believe it’s still so much of a problem a decade later 🙁
