HELP!! Website looks different in IE/FireFox!

I am making a website for a forum I am part of, I’m fairly new to html so I use templates. Just when I thought everything was well I opened my site up in Internet Explorer and it’s the wrong text in the wrong size. My site is [url]www.espnba.b0x.com/full.htm[/url] (temprorary link). What can I do to make it so both are the same?

Here’s my code for my whole site, the text is close to the bottom

@NogDogAug 15.2005 — To start with, always begin your HTML document with a doctype. This gets IE out of "quirks mode" and into something resembling a more standards-compliant mode. This will increase the likelihood that it renders your page in a manner similar to more standards-compliant browsers like Firefox and Opera.

See http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html and choose an applicable doctype declaration, probably one of the HTML 4.01 choices.

Success!
