    There is extra code or something somewhere so that it's really wide. Only happens in Internet Explorer and Safari. Any suggestions on where to look?

    http://www.iudm.org/test/index.html

    The test folder is a new website we're trying to launch today or tomorrow.

    Also any general suggestions for the website? I'm working on updating all of the pictures and stuff right now. They paid someone to make the entire thing and my job is to fix things here and there but mostly just keep it updated.

    Thanks in advance

    Did they pay an Indian to make it? That code makes me sad.

    I doubt the problem is really limited exclusively to IE and Safari.

    Not sure how wide you were going for, but it fits my screen in IE and Firefox.

    The main stuff fits my screen and is correctly positioned but you can scroll like 4 extra inches to the left of just blank

    If you're going to code like that, you may as well just use tables. That's not what CSS is about.

    It's definitely screwed on IE7 and Chrome 5.0.. scrolls sideways.
