WWW FAQs: Why do my Microsoft Publisher web pages look bad in Firefox?


2007-01-02: Microsoft Publisher 2002 and later do not use cross-browser standards when creating web pages. Instead, they use Microsoft's VML markup language, which is not a widely accepted standard and is not supported by Firefox, Safari or other non-Microsoft browsers. The use of Microsoft Publisher to create web pages is not recommended for any sort of serious design work. I recommend the use of a professional product like Dreamweaver. Of course, you also have the option of learning HTML and CSS.
