Start by using Find & Replace (Ctrl+F) to strip out height attributes from your <table> and <td> tags.
Content determines actual height.
Look for any empty <p> or heading tags and delete them as these can add unwanted whitespace.
Finally, validate your code and fix errors related to unbalanced or improperly nested tags as these can adversely effect a layout.

For the page http://tellerbooks.com/books/study_guides/Contracts_and_Sales.htm, I was able to get the column width to be the right size by pulling the right table border slightly to the right. Also, selecting the drop down menu under the column width and selecting “Clear Column Width” caused the table to display correctly in IE and Google Chrome, but in DW, a ½” wide space appeared between the image and the text. I did not like this solution because I wanted the table to appear correctly in both DW and my browser.
For the page http://tellerbooks.com/faith.htm, I modified <td height="30" colspan="3"> to <td colspan="3">, but it did not change all the white space above and below “Scripture.” I also did not find any superfluous paragraph marks. The row height remains much taller than the actual content. Validator’s codes are like Greek to me.
what concerns faith.htm and if I understand you in the right way, you could try this:
<table width="464" border="0" cellpadding="0"> instead of
<table width="464" border="0" cellpadding="7">.
What concerns Contracts_and_Sales.htm:
I used "shift drag" and got a smaller size, close to your "... thumb-intermed.jpg". Because there remained this not identified gap in the line of the measures (I couldn't close it):
so I believe it would be better to use % instead of px for the whole table.
Allow me to make one brief point, as a sidemark for only a few of your image files, "1.The Republic (Plato) 3_thumb.jpg" e.g.
Please don't use spaces in image, folders or filenames. Spaces get converted %20 which leads to problems. You can use underscores or dashes if needed for a visual separation of your terms. And if I'm not mistaken, search engines have problems with blanks. And I quote Murray: ... Whatever the details are, though, using spaces in filenames or paths is a bad practice which WILL lead to problems.
This suggestion makes everything in the page tighter. However, I want all of
the spacing the same, just all the white space above and below the word
Scriptures to be reduced. It seems all this white space is superfluous and
is not present in the other rows.
I fear I don't understand or I don't see the white space(s). Please give me a screenshot and mark the place in questi0n with a sign (You now I use little arrows) ))
I've to anser via eMail. Do you see this message too: "The Adobe Community Forums are being updated!"
I find the problem does not display on another computer running IE 7. The issue may not be displaying on your browswer as you may have a different browser than me. I find the issue in IE 8.0.7601.
