The overall cause of the overlap is your mix of percentage and fixed pixel widths. Combining the two is not a good idea, as a mess is typically the result. However, there are numerous other problems, too:


Outdated and needlessly invalid markup (bloated nested tables, font and center elements, and misguided use of XML-like syntax, for example).
Dimensions defined in pixels, rather than ems or percentages.
Font sizes defined in points and pixels, rather than percentages.
Use of javascript: pseudo-scheme in links.
Attempts at 'hiding' script content (which hasn't been necessary for years).
Using Verdana (http://www.xs4all.nl/~sbpoley/webmatters/verdana.html) and trying to make it much smaller than the browser default.
Badly-written client-side script code (the use of the eval function is almost always a sign of that).
A rewrite wouldn't go amiss.
