- Help! Table acts stragely once uploaded

This is bugging me! I have written a relatively simple series of a
half dozen web pages in Dreamweaver. There is a table with a series of
tabs for switching between the different pages. They look dandy when I
check them locally (F12, which loads the file on the hard disk) in both
Mozilla 1.0.7 and IE 6.0. But once I upload them to the server, IE
does not display the table correctly *when it is first loaded*. Once I
click a tab (or even browse to another site then hit 'back'), it
appears as it should. Mozilla does not have this problem.
Given that the page looks fine locally, I wonder if perhaps there is
something screwy on the server side? If I check "view source" the
source looks exactly the same as when I "view source" when viewing the
local version via F12 in Dreamweaver.
The web page that's causing me headaches is www.blackliquor.com, which
is actually an alias to:
I had this same problem with another site that uses a totally different
server, for some pages I was making for my wife's business. That page
(which I have not gotten around to finishing) is:
Any help appreciated,

Well... after some debugging I solved this myself. Some of the images
that make up the tab bar are just one pixel wide. To stretch the image
across the cell, I had been entering "100%" as the image width. That
worked, but screwed up IE when downloaded from the server. Instead I
put the actual width in pixels for each image and solved the problem.
