Does Validation mean FireFox should work?

I finally got my homepage to validate, and learned a lot about asp.net in the process, but I'm finding that FireFox 2.0 doesn't recognize some links as links. I'm sure I can trouble shoot the specific links that don't work - my real question is whether XHTML 1.0 transitional validation means that FireFox will work, or is it still a case by case issue? If I validated to strict, would that then "guarantee" it?

Validation only means you have written the page to the standards required according to the DocType on the page. It has nothing to do with guaranteeing that any or all Browsers will display it exactly as you think it should be displayed. All Browsers are a bit different in their rendering of code. By validating to the Doctype, there will be fewer rendering issues between Browsers is how I look at it.
