    it's all those tables. they're completely unnecessary. use divs instead.

    haha, welcome to the world of IE. It's messed up in Chrome too...and yes, use divs with float elements to get cross-browser compatibility

    Actually, I just figured it out.

    It wasn't the tables. It was some strange call in the vid code. Tables are all still there, but it looks right in FF, IE, and Chrome now.

    Dunno about Opera or Safari, but I'm happy with it now.

    IE is always a big problem.

    cheers for the rep! and yea browser compatiblity is horrible! I had a client once who wanted a web 2.0 design but was using IE6 and for the life of me, I couldnt explain to him why IE 6 is the dumbest browser ever. IE 7 is a little less dumb and IE8 seems to have picked up it's game pretty well. We can only hope for the next version to be better

    Actually, IE is accepting that GIF just fine, and on the site I'm launching, it's accepting PNGs as well.

    I got it fixed, so all is well.
