this troubles me... i suspect you are not using the template i 
made, but are instead trying to munge the code that was already 
there into validating... this won't work too well since we have made 
a number of changes since that HTML was implemented... not all 
of them are layout, most of them are changes to the way the styles 
are used, and what tags get used in various places...

if you look at http://roselli.org/new_evolt/layout/front.asp, you'll 
notice that the <form> tags are, in fact, inside the cell...

if you were cutting and pasting that header, then there should be 
no problem validating it... you can see that at 
http://roselli.org/new_evolt/layout/, with the link to the validator...

not to mention the entire header layout and image slices are 
different as well....
