One problem may be the following:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="MenuBar/cbcscbinsmenu.css" type="text/css" />

You cannot place stylesheets in the <body> using a DOCTYPE that invokes standards mode. IE will happily get them wherever they are, but other browsers, like Firefox will enforce the DOCTYPE's restrictions. In standards mode, external and embedded style sheets must be referenced between the <head> and </head> tags.

This would work in quirks mode, but then you open a whole different can of worms.

Nice looking web page, by the way.

thanks for your appreciation....

i whole things i learn about CSS, was from your book only, and that is great encouragement for me..

i found that error, it was due to some wrongly placed padding, and <link rel=....
