Tiny little space...

Been playing with Dreamweaver 8.

I dunno.  I added a new link image in the left-hand panel of my website, and now--at least in IE6--I have a tiny, one-pixel-thick space in the right-hand margin of my website.

I got this template for free and don't want to ditch it, though I seem to have these problems often.  Can anyone look at this page in my website in IE6, and tell me how I fix the hairline-thin (horizontal) gap in the right margin?

Thanks a lot.

ok, really you should be using divs and background images here. That is the fundamental problem.

A quick fix would be to do this:

<TD colSpan=2 rowSpan=8 valign="bottom"><IMG height=277 alt="" src="main-image.jpg" width=615></TD>

But I would seriously think about using background images and floated divs for layout.

Also validate your html/css code @ w3.org

Thanks!  This is a template I bought, and I don't really have the energy to overhaul it.  I appreciate that advice, though, which probably helps me more than the quick-fix in the long run.
