There's your problem right there.

Also, when I load your site, I don't see anything, just a blank page with a dark background.

I see the gap. Because the TABLE structure is so heavy, I can't pin down the gap without some more work, but I do wonder about the row of spacer.gif's.

Scratch that. It's the FORM tag that's causing the gap.

You might try putting your FORM tags inside that TABLE instead of wrapping around it.

You can put the FORM tags between TR and TD (openers and closers as well), or even right after the opening TABLE and right before the closer and the gap will usually be removed. That's what I've always done anyways.

really strange thing happens when i view it (in FF currently) - I can see everything loading - lots and lots of little outlined boxes shuffling all around while the page loads - and then they all disappear - pop - pop - pop and I'm left with a blank gray page............ you go figure

Just some friendly advice: I was using tables for a really long time (and making all my websites in Netscape composer... mistake), and didn't even know what layers were when I first heard of them. However, once I got started learning them, I picked them up pretty quick, and, quite frankly, think they are far easier to use than tables.
