          1. You have a link to your internal directory - so we are not seeing
          what you see:-
          <body onload="MM_preloadImages('file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Jack
          Perkins/My Documents/My Pictures/Hannah &amp; Rhetts
          Wedding/Image5.jpg')">


          can you correct that and repost


          2. have you tried increasing the text size with Firefox - using
          <ctrl> +

          It throws you design out - because you are using absolute positioning
          !!!!!.

          3. If your styles had meaningful semantic names rather than "style1,
          layer42 etc - it would make debugging a lot easier.

          4. It is usually advised that you develop you sites with Firefox, as
          that is more standard compliant - and then check it works on IE6 & 7 -
          it is easier that way.
