using IE5.0/win98...

i am experiencing the problem... some guesses, but not tested:

- use of clases in images at top of page...
- use of styled divs with tables that have explicit bgcolors set...
- some bizarre CSS in the linked stylesheet...

try dumping some of that one at a time and test it... feel free to 
repost new URLs for testing if you cannot re-create the problem...
