I am in a webdesign class at my college and I am having trouble with the way the website is being displayed in the browsers. It displays fine in safari, but in anythign else it looks horrible. http://www.matthewtyndall.com/berfmurret take a look for yourself and please let me know what I can do to fix it. I know that its all images and there is no real text, but I just need to know why It is apearing like it is in all other browsers. Thank you.

Incase you need to know. I built it in photoshop and cut it up in imageready.

Well for a start the doc type is incorrect.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

That should be:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

Oh dear spaces:
url(../Berf Murret/
remove them.

and why twice?
background-image: url(../Berf Murret/images/background5.jpg);
background-repeat: repeat;
background-image: url(images/background5.jpg);

width is too wide for 800x600 screen.
width="801" border="
cut that down to at most 760.

Set the borders on you map links to 0 (zero).

As for the gaps, dunno try the above and see if that helps.
