Padding Issue / Layout messing up

As you can see when you open www.cjs.ezhoster.com with Internet Explorer (only messes up with IE), the layout of the site messes up. Notably the footer and the black bars in the header. I have tried removing the padding of the content box and it does fix the issue, but without padding it looks a bit stupid.

All help is appreciated!

it seems like your main problem is with the padding automatically inserted by IE around the images, so if you start here with CSS --

IMG  {padding:0px; margin:0px; border:0px }  

and apply that to the images first, you will probably get rid of the black that is the main cause of the IE issue.

The other problem is here in your code --
<td style="padding:0 44px 0 44;">

that is creating a lot of the problem.  Start with all of those 0px, and increase if not a problem.

YOu can also style the Table and TD just as easily, and you should to remove any inherent padding and margins that IE places in the TD and tables.

I added the IMG  {padding:0px; margin:0px; border:0px } and that seems to do the trick. The problem now though, is that I have no padding on for the content. What should I do?

EDIT: Nevermind, I had a mix up with a few files. The problem is still happening. I know that when I put <td style="padding:0 44px 0 0;"> the problems are fixed, but I need the padding...

Your content is styled with <P> tags as I recall, so do this --

P  {  padding-left:20px; padding-top:10px; padding-bottom:15px; padding-right:10px; }

or you can use a combination of padding and margins, and you can also declare them as

padding: 10 20 15 20px; but I find the rotating nature of that padding hard to remember, so it is easier to specify them as you want to change them.  

Also remember, you should style your CONTENT DIV differently than the DIVs holding images --

DIV.content  { give some padding and margins here }

<DIV class=content> here are your paragraphs of content </DIV>

that is the usual way to do it, keep the content layout styled differently than the graphics layout.

For starters, you're using an incomplete doctype so IE is in quirks mode, which is usually a bad thing. So use this one:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

or even better, this one:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
