Oy. Next time, please post your code in &#91;CODE&#93;&#91;/CODE&#93; tags. You may also edit the above post.

As far your images are concerned, use the title attribute:


<img name="table2" src="construction/table2.jpg" alt="SEATING" title="SEATING" width="100" height= "100">

IE incorrectly displays the alt tag as a tooltip, which it shouldn't--other browsers correctly display the text on hover only if a title value is present (http://fadtastic.net/2007/04/19/proper-use-of-alt-and-title-attributes/).

When you get a chance, you should also read up on why tables for layout are bad (http://phrogz.net/css/WhyTablesAreBadForLayout.html).
