The correct way is to realize it's the year 2006 and CSS has been a spec
since 2001, add a doctype, get rid of those tables for layout and and
make it validate.

The other way is to get someone besides yourself to check those td and
table background colours you have set or not set, in this case you
simply need to add a background colour to your getquote class on the
table you are having problems with, and maybe a couple other places as

.getquote { background-color:#3B4D79; }

btw, amazing in this day and age to see HTML mark-up so ancient on a
supposedly new site.
