html defining positioning

P: 3
Alright, first of all, I design in dreamweaver, but learn the code so I can tweak as necessary. Hitting a speedbump tho. In designing a site for my Guildwars Guild, I cant get the layout the way I want it. Site is:

What I need is for the top banner bar to line up properly, the nav buttons to form a column on the left beneath the banner, and the table to line up with the top button, in the center of the page, beneath the banner. It looks good in the WYSIWYG editor, and I don't see any problems with the code (kinda sloppy, but im new at CSS) that would cause it to screw up. checking in IE 7 and Firefox, neither work out right.

Edit: Also, I want the page backround to be color EEE8AA (i think this is a web friendly color,) and I defined it that way in the style code, but it is not showing in either browser

Ok, I added a bgcolor tag to the site and it fixed the background issue... and I restarted my computer and now the site shows up mostly fine in IE7 for some reason. The images still shift on Firefox, however. How can I fix this?

Erm.... I did a bunch of funky positioning on the site... I got the layout I wanted, and it works in both IE and Firefox, but i don't think it is clean or efficient. If someone could take a look and let me know what I can do to fix it, It would be appreciated.

You need to validate your html and css for those lists of errors that may be affecting this. Many of those errors are xhtml related but, since you don't serve xhtml, browsers will handle fine. Partiularly your use of multiple IDs which must be one unique name for one element. Colors are to begin with a # also.
