Explorer shifting down a table cell for no reason that I can find

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


This should be a fairly simple page, which lines up the second row cell nicely
in the lower right corner. It does in Netscape, but when I check the page in
Explorer, that cell (the entire cell, not just the contents) is shifted down by
6 to 8 pixels.

I would appreciate any help in identifying why the alignment difference is
happening with Explorer.

Thanks in Advance...


Explorer 6.0
Netscape 7.2

Meduseld is a confederation of Households that exists
within something called “The Society”. The Society, while not
being a dedicated or focused living history group, is an association
made of up like minded individuals with an interest in medieval or pre
medieval history or an interest in the mechanisms and structures of
past societies. While its primary focus may be western European
it is certainly not limited to that area of the world.<br>
Meduseld has its origins with the organization known as The Society for
Creative Anachronism, Inc. While many of its members are
participants within that organization, the confederation of Meduseld in
no way claims to be anything official within that organization.<br>
Members of the United Households are encouraged to pursue and explore
the ideals and underlying founding principles of the Society; to
participate in a wide variety of functions intended to enrich the
Living History experience and to explore the inner nobility that lives
within us all. To that end, members come together within the
artificial, intellectual structure that has been created as a stage for
each to explore their potential and particular interest be it martial
combat in the Western tradition, the many arts and sciences or the
origins of myth and legend. While this page was constructed for
the use of the members of the United Households, individuals interested
in contacting us for more information should feel free to do so.
We thank you for your interest.
