I use Hurricane Electric ( http://www.he.net ) to host, they don'thave a lot of the bells and whistles that other sites have, but you can load your own CGIs and I prefer finding my own programs over using ones forced on me by my host anyway.
I checked your site out with Netscape 4.7 and IE 4.5 (Both for the Mac), and the text was fine on both. However in IE the right-most margin (with the scrubs tops for $9.99) didn't even show up at all, and on Netscape the background color is grey, not white.
Other than that, it looks great!
PS you're right about the font, that's something on my list to change.
