I have set up a left navigation table on the site, http://www.gearforhealth.com. However, the main table is below the left navigation. I obviously have a setting wrong somewhere, but I cannot find it. I made the left column smaller so I don't believe space is the issue. Can anyone help here?

it's because the form tags are inside a td definition. This problem only happens with internet explorer (it's ok on netscape).

if you put a form tag inside an html column, eg:
<td>
<form....
field
</form>
</td>

then it'll create spurious whitespace.

the only way round that is to move the form tags so that they're outside the td definition

eg:
<tr>
<form....
<td>
field
</td>
</form>
</tr>

I check things in Explorer and Firefox and the problem is also in Firefox. I tried moving the tags, but that had no effect. Is there another way to put on the left navigation?

As I look at things some more, I don't thinkt he shopping cart will allow me to do what I want. I have extra pages on the site and wanted those to be along the left hand side - as they are on the home page. However, it will not let me put that information there and still keep a nice looking site. So I have removed them for now and sent vp-asp the question to see if it is possible.

aha; sorry; I was on the wrong track; I thought you were talking about the extra/spurious vertical space which is showing up below the top panel's category poplist and search form.
