looks like the text is very large, and because this is a pixel-precise
layout, it breaks...

first things first, kill the <pre> holding the content... let the browser
decide where to wrap...

then drop the text size (not necessarily permanently, just to test)...

and all the cells that either all white or all blue, kill the image and
use a bgcolor (or CSS to set a bgcolor)...

that should get you rolling to cleaning this up...
