can someone help me i dont now where the body of the page is on freewebs users!

Do you know why the gray box might have a different width depending on which browser is used (IE vs. NS)?

On this Dynamic Drive webpage, the problem doesn't occur though. I'm not sure why.

Otherwise, I think the code is great.
