Hi there.
I have to code a whole HTML website for IT. Now, the school only uses Internet Explorer, meaning that when I code my things at school, I only know what it looks like on IE. I have reviewed my current webpages at home, and I have seen a problem.

Google Chrome:

Internet Explorer:


Why is it showing differently in the two browsers? Have I coded something wrong? Here is my body code:
Code:
<body>
<div class="wrapper">
            <center><h3><u>London Field Trip</u></h3></center>
            <br />
            <div class="menu" text-align="center">
              <div align="center"></div>
  <ul> <div align="center"><li>
    <div align="center"><a class="current" href="./index.html">Home</a></div>
  </li>
  <li>
    <div align="center"><a href="./pay.html">Pay for the trip</a></div>
  </li>
  <li><a href="./letter home.pdf">Letter</a></li> <li><a href="./bridgeexperience.html">The London Bridge Experience</a></li> <li><a href="./contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> <br style="clear:left"/> </div></div>


            <br />
            <p><strong>Please Note:</strong> All permission slips must be returned by 27 June. Any students returning permission slips returned after that date will not be included in the trip.</p>
            <br />
<strong>Price per child:</strong> £32.45 (includes transport and lunch)
<br />
<br />
<strong>Costs:</strong>
<br />
<table border="1">
  <tr>
    <th>Activity</th>
    <th>Cost</th>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>The London Bridge Experience</td>
    <td>£11.50</td>
  </tr>
<tr>
    <td>Science Museum</td>
    <td>£0.00</td>
  </tr>
<tr>
    <td>McDonald's</td>
    <td>£5.00</td>
  </tr>
<tr>
    <td>Day Travelcard (Train Ticket)</td>
    <td>£9.90</td>
  </tr>
</table>
<br />

Plus £6.05 for the teacher's costs.
<br />
<br />


            <div class="push"></div>
       
        <div class="footer"><div align="center">
            Copyright © 2012. All Rights Reserved.</div></div>
       

</body>

I also have an external stylesheet if you think the error may be in there.

There are many errors in the HTML coding, but for the problem you stated above is with CSS I think. Can you please post the CSS codes?

I used the W3C validator, and this came up:

However, I got told it was a CSS issue. Here's my CSS if you want to check it:

Code:
a:link {
COLOR: #FFFFFF;
TEXT-DECORATION: none;
}
a:visited {
COLOR: #800080;
TEXT-DECORATION: none;
}
a:hover {
COLOR: #FF0000;
TEXT-DECORATION: none;
BACKGROUND: none;
}
a:active {
COLOR: #800080;
TEXT-DECORATION: none;
BACKGROUND: none;
}

body {
background: URL(images/background.png);
}
body {
color:#FFFFFF;
}
p {
background-color:lightgreen;
padding:10px;
color:black;
align:center;
border:1px dashed #000000;
}
ul
{
list-style-type:none;
margin:0;
padding:0;
}
.menu{    width: 100%;    background-color: #333; }
.menu ul{    margin: 0; padding: 0;    float: left;}  .menu ul li{    display: inline;}  .menu ul li a{    float: left; text-decoration: none;    color: white;    padding: 10.5px 11px;    background-color: #333; }  .menu ul li a:visited{    color: white;}  .menu ul li a:hover, .menu ul li .current{   
color: #fff;   
background-color:#0b75b2;}

BIG EDIT: This is now solved. I solved it using the validator.
