Firefox vs IE6 - dynamic site problem

Hi

I'm trying to develop a members site but find that whilst IE6 works, Firefox doesn't.
Here is an example:
login to click here using danny as username and sam as password.
Try this is Firefox and IE6 and you will see what I mean. Don't worry about the meaningless text, just notice the loss of formatting.
There are no style sheets supplied with this design template.
My concern is the site visitor who is using Firefox will not get the formatted site.
I used easygen to build the dynamic functionality and Dreamweaver MX for the styling.
Many thanks
Steve

The problem is XML

Firefox is better at it than IE.

Remove

<![CDATA[
UNKNOWN {

from

<title>Untitled</title> <style type="text/css"><![CDATA[
UNKNOWN {
FONT-FAMILY: sans-serif

and it will work in both browsers!

Thanks harristweed- sounds very promising!
However, I now have the PHP code not working properly such that when you log in you get the formatting but the scrips isnt loading the logged in name from the database.
Are you familiar with easygen for dynamic sites?
I have made the XML change you suggested and have started again from scratch, rebuilding the database but seem to have lsot my way

I have easygen, but I must confess i've never used it.

If you need help with php/mysql post back!
