Hey people,

Upon viewing one of many emails I create for clients in IE, (the worlds most popular, but completely retarded browser) strange things happen.
(and yes, I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium along side Mac OS X 10.4.9. and, no it's not fun lol)

In my code, I have every possible thing pointing at the right hand column for it's table cells and images to be aligned to the TOP. Including several HTML and CSS tags.

Here is an image showing my problems:


And then here is the email in question online:


The problem is, no matter what I apply to the right hand column, because the content overflows in the content cell (the biggest, middle cell) IE decides to not align the right hand column to the top like i've told it to; but instead, because the content overflows it spreads out each element of the right hand column because of the sudden gain in height for the page.

Unfortunately, I can't get around the content overflowing, but why on earth can't IE see that I've told it to, in multiple cases, to align things to the top instead of spreading them around and resulting in gaps. (However even stranger, the most apparent gaps, in the top right yellow box, don't even appear at the bottom of every image. It goes IMAGE / GAP / IMAGE / IMAGE / GAP / IMAGE / IMAGE.

If any of what I say is making sense to anyone, and if you know of some type of fix to get it working,

PLEASE get in contact with me asap, this is extremely important.

Did you get this fixed?

When I navigate to that page in IE6 I don't see those gaps that your screen shot is showing?
