<TR>
<TD WIDTH="100%" VALIGN="TOP">
<TABLE CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=4 WIDTH="100%" FRAME="VOID" RULES="NONE" BACKGROUND="Pictures/placaeholder.gif" >

I observed two things in your page.

1. You're setting the 'hand' image as the BACKGROUND image in the table. And this TAG has different behaviour in different browsers and some browsers(eg. NS3.0) may not even recognize this. So, I can suggest you one way. Instead of setting this image as BACKGROUND image, you keep it in one of the TD tags and it'll give you the same look as it's giving now. One advantage is all browsers will display that. And you can eliminate the half of the image appearing on right side if you maximize the window.
But in this case you'll have a little difficulty in aligning the image with surrounding links(which will be very easy if you're using any editor for generating HTML)

2. You are using Style sheets in your page. Which may not be the cause of your present problem, but if you want your page to be compatible with all browsers(and old versions) then minimize the usage of DHTML, Style sheets etc. which tend to be browser specific.
