Whoa!! Exploding Slices - Macromedia Fireworks

I've exported the files from FireworksMX into DreameaverMX and previewed it in both Explorer 5.2 and Safari 1.0. In Safari the site appears tight except when I expand the browser the site won't stretch to match the height of the browser...hope I'm making sense. In Explorer 5.5 the site slices are not staying tight and are all over the place, though the site expands with the browser from top to bottom. Any ideas on what's happening here as this is DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!! This forum is my last hope so please sombody help me. Snerp...

    You can go here to view an example page - http://www.thinkmarketing.net/ch_shop/web.html

    I have since played with this example and changed the export settings in FireworksMX under the "HTML" tab to export "nested tables - no spacers." This seemed to solve the scatterd slices problem, except for the tables that I placed the background images that are to expand with the browser window height are only appearing on the left side when previewed in Explorer 5.5. Also the bottom table on the page is not expanding to the height of the browser page.

    When the same page is viewed in Safari all appears perfectly except that it also will not expand to the height of the browser.

    Again I'm completely clueless as to what is going on...your help will be a huge burden off my shoulders.

    Be aware that table height is invalid HTML and can never reliably push a
    table to fill the vertical space in the browser's viewport.
