Can someone help me figure out why my site looks so screwed up in Mozilla. The only problems validator picks up are the passing of variables in the url.

The problem you're having deals with the fact that lots of characters have special meanings in HTML markup.

To get around this, there are special "entities". For instance, " is a quote written in a syntax that your browser will dsplay as a quotation mark, but won't parse as significant to the HTML.

Now it's seeing:

code:
&cPage


In that URL and thinking you're trying to escape something out. Smile

I would try replacing all of the ampersands with &

Go back to just using the amphersand the way you were before. I probably outsmarted myself on that one.

Now, you say your variables aren't getting initialized? Are you trying to use just immediately use $cPage, or are you accessing $_REQUEST["cPage"]?

Im positive it's your divs... Mozilla and DIVS never agreed with (or any other browser)
Use tables... never use divs (unless needed for some ad or w/e)

just need to make your top image size of the down part a bit bigger ;D

pure tables Very Happy

im not a big fan of tables
im fairly sure that mozilla follows the w3c standard and that divs are part of that standard

i found the solution
apparently in the standard when you float a div it is taken out of the normal flow, so when i floated those divs the conataining block didnt expand with them
i found there is a hack to get around this (im not the only one with this problem) it is to add
code:

<div style="clear:both;"></div>

above and below the element and that forces it to the full height
