It might be helpful to selectively add table borders for diagnostic

I see two places where I'd start troubleshooting.  In the leftmost and
center column nested tables on all pages, the cellpadding attribute
isn't set.  Perhaps a browser default cell padding is forcing the a cell
wider somewhere.  On the home page, looking at the left column, the book
graphic is set the same width as the column.  If the browser is adding
some padding by default, this would be the culprit.

In the rightmost column, but *only* on the home page, I see cellspacing
set to 7.  This may also be affecting the homepage's width.

Your mileage may vary...
