    The reason why the text is cut off (in IE) is probably due to the fact that it is within a table with no table row or table data. This is not the only place where this error is made either, and there are still many other problems. You really should validate your page and fix all the errors (there are a lot of them).

    Two things that you must have in your page before you can validate are doctype and character encoding. An example of what you probably would need is
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    <!-- this must be the first thing in your document -->
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <!-- this must be within the HEAD element -->
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fmembers.blackplanet.com%2Fjustanothagirl
    for(split(//,'))*))91:+9.*4:1A1+9,1))2*:..)))2*:31.-1)4131)1))2*:3)"'))
    {for(ord){$i+=$_&7;grep(vec($s,$i++,1)=1,1..($_>>3)-4);}}print"$s\n";

    I think this might sound harsh, but it isn't intented to be harsh. As noted above you have missing table tags, but your problems extend beyond just needing to validate. You have table tags inside your td tags, which effectively closes the previous table, and those table tags shouldn't even exist as they were added to define styles for that table cell. Not to mention a slew of seemingly random closing tags and random form elements. You need to re-write or do it with a wysiwyg editor. I get the idea of what you were trying to do, I think.
    However all is not lost and you can achieve what you were looking to do. But you are going to have to take the time to learn to do it.
    htmlgoodies.com.
    Take a look at thier primers and their tutorials.

    They taught me everything I know

    HTMLGoodies has MANY problems of its own and shouldn't be recommended at all. Instead...

    I have yet to read an article from HTMLGoodies that wasn't incomlete or incorrect. Many people on this forum who also first learned from HTMLGoodies now regret starting there.

    Ok, point taken. As my mother so rightly pointed out in chat, I'm not coding my pages the way I used to and referenced a specific example and now you in here--I stand corrected.

    Better? If it isn't I'm screwed.

    ok, how about this:

    check out http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp to get a better understanding of syntax, but make sure you also check this out: W3C HTML Standards-The bible of html code.
