>>I was able to fix it and fix other problems I did not even know I had.
>>I downloaded a program for free called tidy.exe and it has been a life saver for syntax errors that can really cause problems in webpages. One warning though, if you have major problems with your page it will re-arrange it sometimes, but it will fix it.
>>I tried using different color backgrounds with embedded tables before I got tidy and I that didn't work either. I spent alot of time trying to fix embedded tables before tidy.
>>Now if someone would be kind enough to answer some of my questions that I am posting in the following note.
