    css - firefox on a mac problem

    I'm using the following css and it works fine in IE on a PC, Firefox on a PC and Safari on a Mac -but in Firefox on a Mac the div class I've defined as "title" is left justified within the div id "content" (not justified all the way to the left of the screen). Does anyone know a work around that doesn't mess up other browsers?

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <style type="text/css"> 
    html, body{height: 100%; text-align: center;}
    * {margin: 0; padding: 0;}
    #wrap {width: 1000px; min-height: 100%; height: auto !important; height: 100%;
    	margin: 0 auto -50px; /* the bottom margin is the negative value of the footer's height */
    	text-align: left; background: url(body.jpg) repeat-y;}
    #header {width: 1000px; height: 150px; background: url(composite.jpg) no-repeat;}
    #lcol {width: 187px; float: left; padding: 5px 0 0 0;}
    #content {margin: 0 20px 0 187px; padding: 5px 0 0 0;}

    #push {clear: both; background:none;}
    .title {position:absolute; top:-32px; left:500px; padding-left:5px; padding-top:150px}
    <div id="wrap">
    <div id="header"></div>
    <div id="lcol">
    blah blah - content
    <!--closes lcol --></div>
    <div id="rcol"><!--closes rcol --></div>
    <div id="content">
    <div class="title"><h1>title</h1></div>

    Hello angyl,
    Looks like your code got cut off. A link to the test site would be easier.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
