    I have been building a website by using writing the html. It looks and works perfectly in Firefox/safari, but IE is just not looking/working right. Could any one help me out. Thank You.

    Can you briefly describe what is not behaving in IE? I don't want to bring all that up if I don't have to. :)

    Something is pretty fishy about this website. Came right up in IE7 and IE8

    i put everything into a table to make it 100% width and that didnt work. some of my java doesnt work either, and one of my image links just doesn't show up at all. it is all fine in firefox which everyone should use anyways.

    Looked ok in Flock, but I didn't try it in anything else. I wasn’t going to until I had more of an explanation.

    I have video links to youtube in a java scroller on the right, does not even show up in IE8. It could just be mine, my buddies, and my brothers computers.

    link bar links are not working in IE.

    the frames seem to be layed out differently in Safari than IE.

    Looks much nicer in Safari

    There's a number of critical HTML validation issues. Clean them up and it should help.

    As in the HTML code is not in the proper structure. Example, you have in your code:
    HTML:
    <a href="http://www.savebristolbay.org/site/c.gqLTI4OzGlF/b.2000555/k.BE39/Home.htm" <img src="atrophystalkers/pebblemine.jpg" width="100%">
    </a>
    The anchor tag is not closed properly. It's missing the > at the end just before the img tag starts. This type of issue is present in multiple places. If you use Firefox to view the source code of the main page inside the frame it'll show red font text where there's syntax errors. Also running the site through that validator I linked will tell you about additional problems. you may need to submit the real page rather than the link you provided since it involves frames.
