Unfortunately, you have run into a common problem with browsers which is that they all don't do the same thing the same way. Some suggestions follow:

1. You may be generating perfectly valid HTML but the eccentricities of the specific browser make it so that it can't build the page the same way or at all. You may have to live with the results on the browser that works unless you want to proceed with the next step.

2. Read the bugs list that comes with each browser and see if one of the issues could be affecting you.

3. If you want to fix this by making your HTML come out the same way across all browsers (or just Mozilla/Netscape) then I would suggest reducing your HTML output to the simplest and see how it builds (or breaks) in each browser (Note: that I've had severe problems with generating huge tables in Netscape so you may have to try the large as well as the small).
