If you turn off css support in firefox on windows, it matches the
screenshots that Scott posted. You have all the css placed inline in
the html page and you are using the media="screen" attribute. I am
wondering if this is part of the cause. Maybe try moving the css out
into a proper file and accessing it that way.

When I tried to validate the css it said that no css could be found.
This may be part of your problem.
