    For the following web site:

    www.thedukestreetkings.com

    I am having an issue where the text in the index page (table is
    justifying to the left no matter what I try). The problem does not
    occur when viewing this with Mozilla Firefox and the text covers the
    table appopriately. Looking for any help to see if it's something
    within the HTML. Here is the source for the page in question:

    We just got the official buy in from the radio station for this year's
    event, and <a href="http://www.995themountain.com/"
    target="_blank">99.5 The Mountain</a> is now the
    "Official Media Sponsor" for the "10th Annual Blues And BBQ For Better
    Housing". The Promotion Calendar has cleared November 10, 2007 for the
    event. That means that we will be guaranteed a lot more promotional
    support, which should translate into more air time and more give-a-way
    or auction items. It might even mean more personnel to help out at the
    event. Also, the Sales Department is already working on some
    sponsorship opportunities.<br>
    We are still looking for a corporate sponsor who would match our
    donations. If anyone has any Ideas on how to make this a better event
    please get in touch with Ranger 720-480-4477. Our goal is to make this
    one of the biggest best and most successful fund raisers in the Denver
    area. This is totally grass roots and everything we make goes straight
    to Habitat. Wouldn't it be cool to be able to build a whole house with
    each years proceeds.</font></p>

    You've got tables nested at least three deep, so it's hard to know which
    one to look at. I don't have IE7 here, so it's not obvious to me what's
    wonky. In IE6 I see a strong leftist tendency by the text starting with
    "Cool News for our Tenth Annual...," but you say it's only in IE7, so I
    don't know.

    But you already gave us the URL. We therefore have the code. Or did you
    paste the code here because GoLive added zillions of empty lines to your
    markup, making it unreadable? ;-)

    invokes Quirks mode. Aim for standards mode with, say,
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

    A reduced sample of the problem might help others debugging. I'm not
    claiming the JS is causing your problem, but in that case, why not get
    rid of it and all other extraneous markup, leaving just the problem?
    IAC, I see two JS errors in FF:

    Security Error: Content at http://www.thedukestreetkings.com/ may not
    load or link to
    file:///Users/stin/Library/Preferences/Adobe/GoLive/Settings7/JScripts/GlobalScripts/CSScriptLib.js.

    Bizarre.

    Your code has some validation errors, and while I think they won't cause
    the problem you're seeing (I don't know what csscriptdict does), you
    might get rid of the errors and make sure.

    HTH. In the meantime, remain calm; somebody with IE7 will be along soon.

    John,

    Thanks for your feedback, and pointing out the obvious (that you had
    the code via the link). Duh! Sorry...wasn't thinking. I didn't put
    this particular site together (nor do I have those skills per se) so
    not sure why some of that extraneous code is in there.

    One other point of clarification...I only have IE7 and FF2 to test the
    site from my computer. I do not have IE6, but if you saw the leftist
    tendency in that, it appears to be something in my HTML that is giving
    the Microsoft browser a problem.

    Christmas has come early for you!

    By following the advice here:
    <http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2006/04/test-internet-explorer-7-without.html>
    you can run IE7 without installing it. :)

    Presumably the problem is that the text appears as a narrow column in
    the left side of the table?

    Here's the pesky culprit. The table cell which contains the text is
    given a width of 140 in the HTML. Simple remove it.

    <td colspan="5" bgcolor="#333333" valign="middle" width="140">

    becomes:

    <td colspan="5" bgcolor="#333333" valign="middle">

    But one still needs XP? No good on Win 2000, right?

    No IE7 for Win2000, must be XP or Win2003.
