Another question about css.
What does your stylesheet say about <td>?
you aren't using css to position your table. In fact, you seem to being using lots of depricated attributes in your html code to position things. If you want to try css you should first:
Good grief, "depricated attributes" is how I feel every morning, or is that a technical term?
depricated attributes... there are parts of html that work but that are not going to work in future versions. XHTML in particular says "don't use this stuff". But, the things they say not to use can be done with CSS. If you clean out your presentation attributes from your html you get benefits: First, your pages are usually a lot smaller. Second, they are easier to edit -- you don't need to type in all that stuff. Using CSS instead lets you set it once and forget. And when you get bored with your color scheme, or your layout, you can just change the css file and ... voila, the whole site is new looking, and you didn't have to edit all of those articles you have created over time.
I thought I should follow up with some references. This link to the html spec talks about attributes used in formatting:
Change Line 19 to:
btw, this is a depricated answer.
depricated is apparently really spelled deprecated.
...and spelled is spelt! ;-)

I know that the word used for tags that will be removed is deprecated, but from looking in the dictionary a better choice may have been depreciated.
Oh my God, TD BGCOLOR is already deprecated. ALIGN is deprecated. It was hell enough learning tables in 1995. Now the nob-heads at W3C want me to learn HTML all over again? Ya, right. I'll replace HTML4 "deprecated" tags with CSS and follow the W3C's other marching orders when the Semantic Web takes off ( http://www.shirky.com/writings/semantic_syllogism.html ) or Netscape reduces Windows to a set of device drivers, whichever happens first.
I don't thing deprecated markeup will ever not display in browsers, because there is too much stuff written that way out there. No company is going to want to say 'to heck with anything written before 200x".
Speaking of widespread CSS adoption and depreceted (can we find more alternate spellings?), how many browsers currently support things that aren't in the latest W3C spec?
