Ouch!! The tables code hurt
Ouch!! The tables code hurt my eyes. Listen, the very best advise anybody in here will give you, is start over, and do it a better way.
We dont use tables for page layout anymore, we use css to style html tags to form the layout. If you truly want to do things the right way, you first must learn how. Please follow the links below to start your journey. Also, always be validating the code throughout the coding process.

Display differences between Explorer, Firefox and Chrome
Having exactly the same problem as jcary (and I liked your site - nursing in Alaska - wow!), I found your post and would like to thank Cupids Toejam for that good advice, which I followed to the letter. As an artist, I have hundreds of images and some text - perfect for tables but, no, I redid just one page entirely in CSS. My name across the top, one large, one smaller image and a block of text above the smaller image. All DIV's. The text should have made a neat rectangle of its own above the small image, the text and image being the exact height of the larger image, just as I have been successfully designing that page with tables for about the last 10 years. Tried the 10pt text in ems as well as pxls.
Explorer 8 blew the whole lot up by 125%, destroying the clarity of the images and making the text look huge and unpleasant. Firefox was the nearest to right using ems - pts came out huge again, but Chrome rendered the text ems at about 6pt - unreadable.

That's just as bad as using tables for layout. research the term "divitis" (or sometimes called "divitus") to see why.
The proper alternative for tables is "Plain old Semantic HTML" for markup, and CSS for presentation. DIVS should only be used when no semantic html element is available, usually no more than a very few times on a page.
You'd be best to stop "thinking in tables" and start again with a "beginners mind".
