A friend of mine has spent a lot of time developing a business website with Publisher 2003, which apparently only works properly with Internet Explorer.

She has asked me to try and find out from you good people how to make it compatible with other browsers. This is not my sort of thing at all so any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

The site is

cross browser problems? scerge of the web designer,
main ones i noticed are word spacing, line spacing, font types, and text size, CSS are sposed to fix most of the problems, layers with absolute settings help with others.
then there is the end user, images on or off, java on or off, text resizing on or off, screen size, screen resolution the list goes on,
my way past all these problems (except java off) is FLASH, i build all my smaller sites, and some bigger ones in flash, cross browser proof and can do some nice slik trix too

One of the first steps should be to make sure that the code is 100% standards-compliant. There are 12 errors just in that little bit of code.

Try starting there.

The page in the frame is much worse with atleast 470 validation errors. The page, especially designed in MS Publisher, would be probably best done over outside of MS Publisher (Or any other MS web designing capable applications) because its codes are specialized for IE. There is no certainty, and it is probably unlikely even if you fix those errors, that it would look as wanted in non-IE browsers like Opera or Firefox.
