Website structure & navigation jumps around in browser

Check out this home page;


If you navigate around to the contact page, the entire structure and navigation jumps around horizontally in ie8 and other browsers. Anyone know the reason why? The table widths are right and the code is the same.

The client want to know what we can do to fix it.

Your Wrapper table
<table width="990" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
Should be <table width="988"

please explain your theory. I changed a bunch of pages to 988 and that did not solve it. This a table, it would not matter.

I bet it has something to do with some pages not having a space to force the width and or make the table cell snap to it.

You mean because of the scrollbar not being present on the shorter pages? Try adding this rule to your stylesheet:
html {
  overflow-y: scroll;

Open in new window

It did not exactly solve all the problems but it did help to solve some of the problem. This problem may not be able to be solved fully regardless.
