Default Please Help With Web Site Design Error

Ok, so I designed my newest site in Dreamweaver and when its uploaded and I look at it on my laptop in both IE and Firefox, its looks great, but when I look at it on our home computer in IE, there is a HUGE space at the top before the main info! I can't figure out why! Anybody have any ideas??

here is the site: http://www.personaltrainerstools.com

Hi Angie, I'm not exactly sure where you mean by "at the top before the main info". I took a quick look at the html, and I'm thinking it may be you have some extra paragraph tags in there

go thru your html and see if there are extra tags like below you can remove -

Code:
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p></p>
I'm not sure that is it though, as I'm not able to see the same issue you have on your home computer. Looks good to me!

I've tried it on IE and Firefox here, and it looks the same in both -- no huge spaces anywhere.

Is your home computer using a different screen resolution than your laptop? Could be your layout is designed for the laptop's screen res and at something different, bits and pieces get moved around.

Logan's right -- if there are extra blank paragraphs in there, that could very well cause some of what you're seeing. But since I can't reproduce the issue either, it's very hard to troubleshoot.

I didn't see a big space at the top when I checked your site on my computer. There was a silver/gray colored bar, but it looked like it was part of the design. Is that the space you're talking about?

Angie - it looks fine in several browsers; however, you may wish to fix your 81 code warnings below to ensure the site displays properly:

heh heh -- DW and that nasty FrontPage throw in 100's of useless characters in the code, creating numerous errors and hinder how a site displays properly in all browsers ... one should learn how to hand-code and validate their site.
