No jump in Mac N7- MSIE5.2 ... still does in Safari. Have you tried 
setting the bgcolor to the same as the bg image?

Is there anyway you can re-scale the logos so that they are about the 
same size? Or just "grin and bear it" and have the space-holder the 
same size, regardless -- then have the text always start in the same 
place? I think the benefit of "not jumping" would over-ride the 
negative of white space. (Others may disagree!)
