The start page is looking pretty cool. Make sure that you hover above the 'Parties' link on the main page. :-)

How do you suggest that we demonstrate that Mozilla is better without pointing out that Mozilla can do things that IE cannot?

If we make the page look the same in both IE and Mozilla then it has less impact on the viewer. If we show them that IE does it wrong then they will know because they saw it for themselves.

The "Microsoft way" in this case works very well. There is nothing immoral about it. We are just using standards that Microsoft does not comply to.

Who are you afraid of chasing away? If someone looks at the page in IE and is told that the site can not be viewed properly with IE then they have a choice to either check out Mozilla or not. If they view the site in IE and it looks fine then they have the choice to check out Mozilla or not. The difference is that in the first scenario we have increased their curiousity about how the page is supposed to look..
