Please look at http://www.brisbanesymphony.org.au/BSO/main.htm in both IE7 and Firefox.
Why is there a gap under the header in IE7?

what's with all the tables?

what's with all the tables?

IE is reserving space under the image for font descenders. Try this:
img {vertical-align: bottom;}

First off - I like the new website!

First off - I like the new website.

It's a lot "warmer" than the current one.
Wolf's right though with respect to you having too many tables.

Just about everone here will tell you that tables are great for displaying data that is suitable for a tabulated format.

Using tables for presentation is not necessarily the best web design practice though.

Some pretty simple changes could be made to "CSSify" your presentation.

Check here for a nicely explained method (and all the required source code too!)

The Author; Clevatreva (I'm certain) lives here on the forum and so will be able to assist you with anything particular you might have about the link above.

(I couldn't find it while writing this reply - but Trevor has also posted his "base" template sets that he uses for all his work. You might want to check them out too! - thee's a search in the top right corner of the site)

And I'm sure you'll find that everyone else (just as I, recently did) are only too happy to go beyond the level of just being nice - to help you.

What I'm really trying to say is - you should lose the over use of tables - especially when using them for "setting-out" design, but don't fret about it - everyone here will volunteer to help you make the move over to a CSS presentation - if that's what you want to do.

That Worked!

Thanks to both of you for your helpful comments and links.
Setting that table cell to valign bottom did the trick.
I will now try to convert the whole layout into css!
