Does this look normal?

Does that look normal? I am converting our site to actually use divs and CSS instead of tables, so I was wondering if anyone saw anythign wrong on that page (Other than IE showing statistics at bit weird)

The header field, the part with "Profiles/Settings" and "Statistics" is truncated for me in FF. I don't have a very wide browser, about 2/3 of a 1200 width, and now the part beneath the area I describe floats up and covers this gray part.

I would also make the cells for the rightmost part of this particular area, the statistics part, cover 3 columns rather than 2 as it does today, possibly more but right aligned.

Using IE 7 looks pretty normal to me.

Hmm, could you post a screenshot? I can't seem to reproduce it on my computer or browsershots

It's the same in both Windoze and Linux.

That problem is gone, yes.

But have a look at this image http://simongronlund.googlepages.com/Captured3.png

You see how the 4th bottom cell is too tight. Why don't make the 3rd and 4th into one, make the 3rd cell to columnspan=2 ?? And of course make the LOGOUT the second cell in that row.

I like that the links to the leftmost column is more tight, great.

They're actually based off lists this time (Instead of tables nested in tables nested in tables nested in tables)

Added more room for the Statistics part.

The reason I ain't merging them is that I want to create the header from scratch with the use of basically anything other than tables for layout. I'll revisit the problem once I get around to doing that
