Default Tabs in Firefox 3 Opera 9.26

I modified project1 of 'CSS Projects Instant Results'. The code is appended below. The tabs works exactly in IE6 but doesn't work in firefox 3 & opera 9.26. Plz help. Where am I going wrong?

HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' xml:lang='en'>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
        <link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='tabs.css' />

        <!--[if lt IE 7]>
            <script src="/ie7/ie7-standard-p.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <body id='home' bgcolor="lime">
        <ul id='tabs'>
            <img alt="Banner" src="../Aurora/Header.gif" width="999" height="100" /></li>
            <li id='tab1'><a href='home.html'><span>Home</span></a></li>
            <li id='tab2'><a href='films.html'><span>Films</span></a></li>
            <li id='tab3'><a href='docu.html'><span>Documentaries</span></a></li>
            <li id='tab4'><a href='awards.html'><span>Awards</span></a></li>
            <li id='tab5'><a href='studio.html'><span>Studio</span></a></li>
            <li id='tab6'><a href='as.html'><span>About Us</span></a></li>
        <div id='iframe' style="left: 6; right: -6; top: 0; bottom: 0">
            <iframe src='http://home.html' frameborder='0' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0'></iframe>
