Hi Jen,

Good question! I don't have Safari so can't test this, but you might want to
try this -  I've replaced the nested table with colspans, and removed the
repeated height specifiers in th and td elements:

<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"

<tr height="75">
<th colspan=3 bgcolor="#9f9f9f">header</td>

<td valign="top" bgcolor="#dedede" width="185">side</td>
<td valign="top">middle</td>
<td valign="top" bgcolor="#dedede">side</td>

<tr height="5%">
<td colspan=3 bgcolor="#9f9f9f">footer</td>


If you want to get fancy you could use <thead> and <tfoot> elements to
specify your header and footer sections.
