1. You have a link to your internal directory - so we are not seeing
what you see:-
<body onload="MM_preloadImages('file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Jack
Perkins/My Documents/My Pictures/Hannah & Rhetts

can you correct that and repost

2. have you tried increasing the text size with Firefox - using
<ctrl> +

It throws you design out - because you are using absolute positioning

3. If your styles had meaningful semantic names rather than "style1,
layer42 etc - it would make debugging a lot easier.

4. It is usually advised that you develop you sites with Firefox, as
that is more standard compliant - and then check it works on IE6 & 7 -
it is easier that way.
