This is really frustrating (you probably guessed that when you saw "IE" in
the subject line).  I'm helping a friend out with a site he's working on
(and by "helping" I mean "he's paying me for this") and I'm mostly done.
But, I'm running into a few quirks in the look of the page in IE 7 & 8.

First, the site:  http://ww.divineoutdoors.com/  [you should only see that
annoying splash page once per session]

It looks fine in other browsers, but IE puts two small vertical gaps in the
layout.  I've tried just about everything I can think of an was hoping for a
little guidance on getting it to look right in IE along with the others.

Oh, and yes, I know it's a table layout, which I'm not thrilled with.  He
gave it to me sliced up that way.  Last night, I tried going down the road
of doing it all with CSS, but ran into a similar problem (I'm guessing IE's
box model is STILL broken).

So, I'd appreciate if anyone could spot any obvious things I'm missing (all
the widths and heights look right).
