Hi John,

I believe you can solve your problem if you enter width values in your <td>
tags in this area:

<!-- round rectangle content border -->

You know the width of these cells because you know the width of the gifs
that go inside them which make up the border. Give the content area a <td>
width value also to confine how wide the text stretches the cell.

That should solve your problem.
