In IE6 Windows the site displays the way I want but Mozilla displays a different thing. Which one is right?

Browsers are all different, and the best way to get around those differences is to use a different style sheet for the different browsers.

No, no, no! Browser sniffing is not the way to go.

Design a site that conforms to web standards and you're most of the way there. Besides incompatibilities in older browsers, most current browsers will display a page the same way.

If you absolutely have to, you can hide certain CSS rules from browsers within the file itself.

Make sure to validate your HTML (http://validator.w3.org/) and CSS (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator-uri.html).
