Layout/spacing problem

BT
I inherited a website to maintain and there is a minor spacing glitch that
shows up in IE v6, but not in FireFox v1.5. The website is
www.crhschoir.org and the problem is with the second row of buttons. There
are two buttons in the center (Charm Calendar and Forms) with one blank
button to the left and one to the right. In IE the blank buttons are ever
so slightly larger than the other two buttons. If I add a link to the blank
buttons, then the spacing problem goes away.

Can someone describe what is going on and how I could fix the problem?

On a totally unrelated question why is it that I can enter ibm.com and get
to www.ibm.com or nd.edu and get to a live page, but baylor.edu times out?
www.baylor.edu works fine.

many thanks

Apparently, there is more of a problem than just a couple buttons.

It looks fine in both Firefox and Opera.
Maybe something here will help:

It's called redirection.
<ibm.comis the base domain name. Its DNS sever resolves <ibm.comand
sends the request to <www.ibm.com>.
The DNS server at <nd.eduresolves the name and uses it directly.
The DNS server at <baylor.eduresolves to a host that does not respond
to HTTP requests whereas <www.baylor.edudoes. The sysadmins at Baylor
are a little dim.
