Have you checked this in Netscape 6?
There's your tiny text...

I see your .menu class of <a> tags is 0.6em, that's TINY! I wonder why it
works at all on the browsers it does work on...

Hm, well, I've tried usign ems as a unit, and unless you absolutely have
to...it's probably better not to. I've found pixels to be way more reliable
and accurately sizable.

If you DO use ems, try bumping up the size to at least .9...anything smaller
is impossible to read on  a Mac.

Why the positioned <div>s? You're using tables for the layout anyway, so
since that's a)more relaiable b) works in more browsers c) within your range
of experience, why not just lay the page out with tables?
