Why does IE hate my website? I've got it looking decent in Safari and Firefox, but it looks hideous in Explorer. Having done a fair amount of Googling, I've come to the conclusion that it's probably related to one of Explorer's notorious CSS rendering bugs, but my self-taught CSS and HTML is not enough to enable me to pinpoint and solve the problem.

What WYSIWYG HTML / Web page Editor will you recommend? [more inside]
CSS with dynamic content. I'm trying to create a web page using CSS and text pulled from a database, so that it looks like this: http://www.blogfucker.com/junk/css_help.gif. "Image 2" is simply floated left. Very simple to do with static content. But this is for a client who will only be able to edit the text, which will be entered as a single block of text. How do I throw a floated image in there so it shows up roughly in the middle of the page? I've considered writing a script to count the number of paragraphs (or even characters) and dividing by two, and throwing it in that way. But I feel there must be a simpler way.

I am a total html novice. I have ten pages, "page1.html" through "page10.html" that I have already created. I want to have a link ("slide show!") on my home page "index.html" that, once clicked, creates a slide show of "page1" through "10", showing each page for 5 seconds until finished (never showing any page more than once.) I also want the order of the pages to be random (ie showing the slide show in a different order each time the link on "index" is clicked.) Is this possible? If so how in the heck can I do it!?!?

The only reason I keep Mozilla around (I use Firefox mainly) is for Mozilla Composer. It's the only thing I've found where I can paste in foreign-language text (with accent marks and special characters) and then have it give me the HTML to properly reproduce those special characters on a web page. Anyone know of a more stand-alone equivalent? If I could get an app (preferrably free or shareware) for OS X that can do this, I can ditch the Mozilla suite.
