    The following link is shifting the left menu down (splitting it up) when viewed on a pc. Furthermore the menu looks fine on mac browsers. I am using a template and .jpg rollover images for the menu buttons. What is causing this shift??? anyone... please help!

    This is really hard because you're using <table>s to layout your page.
    Using a table-less layout would be the answer, but you've pretty much
    done the whole page already.

    What I think is happening, is that you are working your page from left to right,
    top to bottom, so that each navigation button becomes a part of the text
    on the right ... when the text section is taller than the button, it adds blank
    space below the button.

    If you were to not use tables, the nav section would be a <div> (vertical) floated
    left against the content (another <div>). This would do 2 things for you.

    1) The nav would be all by itself, so you could use the same navigation section
    on every page, and use code to highlight the button for the current page.

    2) Because the nav is separate, you have total control over the content, easily
    adding content without dealing with <tr><td>. The content could be a bunch
    of text files that are included (using PHP). Basically, you have a template that
    is used for all of your pages.


    Here's the catch though. It looks like you're using a web page editor (dreamweaver?).
    You need to quit using the WYSIWYG interface and start doing it either by hand,
    or use some feature they might have ... where it doesn't use <table>s.

    I would recommend you start over, but that's just my opinion.
