[html5] explorer vs firefox layer display

Classically, Internet Explorer and Firefox have displayed pages in
different ways.  I think that dreamweaver uses inline styles (e.g. <p
style="font-family:Helvetica;font-size:1.25em;">), if however it's
using separate CSS files (you will see a <link rel="stylesheet" ...
href="path/to/css/style.css" />) you would be able to use different
CSS files for both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

If you're able to check and see what type of styling is being used
then it will be easier to fix.  If you're not able to feel free to
upload a sample page and I (or others) can help you get it sorted out.
 (Hand-writing HTML will teach you more than Dreamweaver can.)
