    OK, I take that back, the code is for the most part valid, the only invalid tag is the allowTransparency="true" tag, and there is no DOCTYPE declaration. The problem seems to be the spacer gifs.

    Its cut up with ImageReady, thats all good except for the fact that it only creates site that look nice for IE.

    I suggest you start from scratch, plan out properly, and write HTML for a alt browser like Opera or FireBIrd, if it works great in those, it will almost certainly work fine in IE.
     
  5. well i started from scratch as suggested. someone open my site up in firebird and tell me how it looks

    It is rendering correctly on Firebird now, the only thing that I would suggest is to use CSS for everything, you have the div sections defined, you should also use it for the images too ;)

    and use lowercase for attributes,
