|On the road to XHTML...

So, bit by bit I'm incorporating this crazy thing known as XHTML into my website. Naturally, I start with the index page of my domain (here). I'm tickled pink when The W3C Markup Validation Service validates my code, but am quickly taken back a shade or two when I realize that my layout no longer look like it's supposed to.
If you take a look at the index (once again located here), you'll notice that there's some funky chunky breaking going on between my top images and my table. The space is notiable in both Firefox and IE, but here are some specifics taken from a screenshot in Firefox:
• From the top of the page to wi_bl_00.gif -- 11 px
• From wi_bl_00.gif to wi_bl_01.gif -- 2 px
• From wi_bl_01.gif to table -- 14 px
• From button.gif to wi_bl_00.gif -- 8 px
• From wi_bl_00.gif to button2.gif -- 2 px
All of these should be zero.
I've yet to really find any place where I can discuss this problem and get an answer, so, like, if you have any information at all whatsoever (help for this, a link to a message board for XHTML help, etc.), I'd be super appreciative. Though I can make the layout look good using plain HTML, I'm really trying to take the right steps forward and get this to work and look good.
