    I'm trying to clean up the code on my site.

    When validating I get errors related to XHTML.

    My flash play buttons give me errors and the table heights.
    I've been reading that turning the site into a CSS based layout would fix this.
    I'm not really sure if I have the time, knowledge and patience to do it.

    There must be a way to clean up my current site for it to pass validation.

    If anyone could help...

    Why did you make your website with tables? Tables are made to hold information. Not for a website layout.

    You will have to completely remake your site properly making proper use of divs and css if you want it to be made properly.

    Well I have no official training in webdesign. I always "tinkered" my way thru.

    I am going to be working on re-developing with CSS layout.
    But I guess I'm still confused when and how exactally to use tables even within a CSS layout. So is it ok to put a table inside a CSS layout?

    I've been fiddling with the CSS layout templates in dreamweaver and it has helped a lot in understanding how it all works. But it seems hard to do layout wise what I have done with my incorrect use of tables.
    From scratch it all seems overwhelming.

    I'm working at though...

    Hey Chris, if you could... Have a look at my current effort in re-design.

    My CSS layout redesign is going on.

    When I use validator screen caps from ie6 things are a mess.
    Aside from the png masking, the alignment is all wacky.

    Looking good. To be honest I wouldn't be too worried about IE6 compatability. The more websites that aren't compatible the better in my opinion. We have to try to get people to stop using IE6.

    If you want your website to have proper alignment. The best way to go about it is have one div that sits in the middle of the page. This div will have a static width. Inside of that you should have another div, this div will have the same width only be floated to the left. Then all of the rest of the divs inside of that div should be floated left as well. This technique should work in IE6 and all new browsers.

    It's good to see you have used divs. Good job.
