First is that you have an incomplete DOCTYPE, you only have the first half which may cause IE to render that page in 'quirks' mode..  http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html

W3C also says that <spacer> is a 'non-conforming element' and not to use it.  http://www.w3.org/wiki/HTML/Elements/spacer

Are you really using Adobe Go-Live?

no - this is a page that I am trying to edit. It was created by someone else.
I use dreamweaver and notepad

Would it be better if I started from scratch and used div elements ?

Oh yes, it's a piece of... what you don't want.  Just do something else that works.
