As an alternative if you can't get him to switch is to get him to modify the 
settings in Frontpage to support a web site that is Firefox compatible. If he 
opens Frontpage, opens the web site and then goes to Tools > Page Options 
there is a "compatability" tab that allows you to set your expected client 
web browsers. If he sets it for "both Internet Explorer and Navigator" it 
will stop using the features that work only with Internet Explorer. One thing 
though, I don't know if this will fix the existing pages on the site, only 
prevent him from using the IE only features going forward.




The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
 system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world.
