    You would be wise to check that page in Netscape 7. The whole thing
    jumps up and down when mousing over the central image.

    Web:

    Notices like that are pretty much sure to brand your site as being built by
    a new and inexperienced developer, in my opinion.
    > otherwise could be too complicated
    Isn't that what you make the big bucks for?

    I had a quick look through your code and am certain that your table
    structure is the source of most of your problems. You are using cell
    widths/heights and col- and rowspans to make the table work and that's just
    a bad idea. Try running through the table tutorials at the DW FAQ link in
    my sig to get started on the right path.

    In addition, your use of HTML styles rather than CSS styles for the text is
    sure to lead to browser/platform differences.

    Finally, the page is a bit heavy - target for a page like this is 40-45K....


    Size of all images: 67.832 kB
    Size of HTML-source: 24.93 kB
    Size of whole page: 92.762 kB

    Making sure the markup (and CSS, if any) validate is a good start.
    It looks to me like the central graphic is getting "caught up" by your
    scrolling news box. If you have unbalanced tags, fixing that could fix
    the layout problem.

    In many circles, that's tantamount to putting a notice on the page
    declaring your inability to be a professional Web designer, and in other
    communities it's interpreted as your telling users they're idiots for
    using a browser other than IE. You might want to rethink the approach.
