If your there and see anything else it would also be helpful

    My first response to you would be to stop using tables and get your CSS into an external sheet.
    Once you have your information in divs rather than table cells, you will be able to position them using CSS.
    I see you are using Dreamweaver - I am guessing you are using the design view. This is notoriously inaccurate with positioning.

    To create a stylesheet, I use dreamweaver to create a css file and then save it in a folder called assets. I usually call it styles and it will have a .css file extension.

    To link to an external css, use this code:

    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    In the href, put the location of your stylesheet. For example, if it's in the folder 'assets' than the href would be: assets/styles.css

    There are a number of places on the internet that you can go to and learn about css. I would just Google css for beginners, or something along those lines.

    The div tag is what contains the content. Very much like a <td> tag, it is a 'box' that you can put the content into and then modify it's position/look using css. I would do some research on them to fully understand how to use them.

    Oh and almost forgot, the <link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> tag for the css file is put in the <head></head> tag on every page that you want to attach the css file.

    Jeffrey - well said - that is one of the most concise explanations of CSS I have ever heard. I'd like to use it as a starting point for my lectures, may I?

    Thank you. I couldnt make it so they were in divs instead of tables because there wasnt enough time, but getting the style off the page and in to a style sheet with css really helped. the site is loading right now and works on all browsers. you guys helped a lot.
