ah ha! that was my problem - I realize now the alignments/placements re in
relation to each other where before they were in relation to the outer edges

home page is causing me a touch of grief too with side divs not showing the

the other pages:
Thanks for all of your help. With this last bit of finesse, I should be
able to finally launch this site!
