I think of making a web page that will work with a variety of browsers the opposite way -- the difficult part is not getting it to work in Mozilla, but getting it to work in IE, Opera, and older versions of Netscape.
If I wrote instructions for making a web page compatible with most browsers, I'd suggest the following:
1. Select the DTD you want to use -- transitional HTML, strict HTML, or XHTML. I couldn't recommend XHTML because it's not supported well in non-Gecko browsers. I'd instead recommend strict HTML because most browsers render transitional HTML in quirks mode, not according to W3C standards.
3. Validate the HTML and CSS using the W3C validators.
