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
[size=2]<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<!-- this must be the first thing in your document -->[/size]
[size=2]<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<!-- this must be within the HEAD element -->[/size]
