Why does my page freak out?

Head to http://www.countryshowdown.com and compare that to countryshowdown.com/index_1.php

The alignment is off and I'm wondering if it's because I've got some scripts competing with one another. I've tried eliminating different pieces, but to no avail. Hence, the trip to experts-exchange.

The map is the difference maker. I'm trying to get that to work alongside everything else that's present.

What do you think?

Thanks for the feedback. Validator has always been valuable to me in terms of best practices, but I have never had it point out what was not firing correctly code wise.

This may have been an exception, however, in that rather than adding "alt" tags to my images, I wasn't declaring my doctype correctly. The thing that became evident was that my map was asserting a different stylesheet. I determined to display it as an iframe and it's all good now.

Thanks for your feedback!
