I have been trying for weeks to get rid of a spacing in IE7 and am at a loss as to what is causing it..do you guys think you could take a look at the page and maybe help me out? I have go through so many page revisions I have basically started trying the same things over again. In FF, IE8, Chrome and Safari the width is perfect...IE7 is bugging me like crazy.
Below is a pic of the space. You can see it next to TRAVEL CASES. it is like something starts to stretch the page, making the menu bar start to show another button.

It's also worth noting that there are a ton of nested tables (tables within tables), which make this sort of troubleshooting a terrible headache. Just one reason to avoid this sort of nested tables for layout.

thanks for the replies. @milosevic
I added that code in there and had no change. Not sure what that code was supposed to do, but I think some conditional code is going to be required.
I know..it is a complete mess. I did not do the original design of the page and am working with what I have for the moment. I think that if everything was in its own table or something of that nature, things would be 100% easier. I know it must be inheriting some width from somewhere or something crazy..
Also, not sure if it's worth noting, this is where I got the code for the menu bar.

I think I should have been a little more clear in my relply. sorry.
I do not know what to change. I tried changing the width of the div, but I see no change. I have been trying to use IE dev tools to edit it on the fly. I also tried to put the code in with the width of that div changed and I still see no results...
this means it is coming from somewhere else right? something else in the top menu is pushing it out right?

The <td>'s in the <tr> that contains "FRAME_SEARCH" each have width values assigned. When I remove those widths (via the IE Dev Toolbar), it lines up much more nicely. So I suspect therein lies your problem.

thanks for helping me. I was able to get that width adjusted and the page looks good now. For some there is still a little gap on an actual product page, but I'll have look around and see what causes it
