[thelist] NN4.7 CSS woes

Thanks, the padding/margin was the culprit. I moved them over to a
separate style sheet via @ import and it works like a charm.
I put the content and headers in on table cell which simplified the
page (good!) and seems to have fixed the big honking gap (great!).

But now, or still, there are a few more NN4.7 quirks.

http://www.gwcreative.com/working/weekapaug/history.html has the bottom
of the page graphic overlapping the graphic in the side of the table
cell above. (?!)
and http://www.gwcreative.com/working/weekapaug/contact.html is all
stretched out rather than the tidy width of the other pages. Sheesh.
any insight on those?

Thanks again for the help, I appreciate it.
