Without know what it looks like I can give you this advice. Netscape is much more stringent on its rules for closing tags and nesting order of tags. So make sure you have a proper opening and closing of body and table tags along with any td and tr tags. IE is pretty forgiving and it will make up for any mistake you make, but Netscape won't allow this. That is why when I am creating pages, I test in both browsers, but I test in Netscape first. If it works in Netscape, chances are pretty good it will work in IE (unless you are dealing with JavaScript).

Why not post a sample of you code or the URL of the webpage so we can have a look at your code and give you some better advice.
There is a lot of stuff that you can do in IE that you cannot do in Netscape. It's a real pain!

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
