Becoming Adept!

When clicking on any of the links to posts I have for my pages, every window has this huge wide area above where the text is that's just white.  I never had this problem before and I've had my page for weeks now.  You can find my page at http://www.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=302899&TabID=2538556  and just click on any of the links on the left hand side under "getting started" or "information links" and you'll see what I'm talking about.  The weird thing is that if you click on the white open space and drag your cursor, it actually highlights a bunch of what looks to be html.  Not sure how this issue came about as I haven't changed anything major on my page recently and this issue just occurred yesterday.  Can anyone tell me what is happening and exactly what I need to do in order to fix the problem?  Keep in mind I am not that familiar with html, so try to keep it fairly simple please.

I am having the same problem with mine as well. At first I thought it was because I edited one of my sections, but then I tried the others and it does it on all of them. If you scroll down, you will see what you are supposed to see. When it first loads it there is a REALLY light blue brief flash of characters almost undiscernible... like code maybe? and then its just pure white...
I have a very lucky screen shot of the odd light blue characters if you would like to see it, just email me or whatever. I'll hang onto it for a while.

Yup its Code... you can actually highlight the white area as if you were highlighting a normal document, and see the code... here's a taste:

html, body, div, p, td, form, img, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, input,select {font-family: Helvetica,Verdana,Segoe,sans-serif;font-size:10pt;}table, th, td { font-size: 1em !important; }.SmallDisplay {font-size: 80%; }ul { list-style-type: square; margin-top: 2px;margin-bottom: 5px; text-indent: 5px; margin-left: 4px; padding-left:10px }li { margin-left: 5px; text-indent: 2px; }body {background:url('http://media.g4tv.com/images/blog/2007/08/20/633231927214881121.jpg');margin-bottom:0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top:0px;background-color:  (etc etc etc)

alright, so then it seems it's an issue with a server.  considering i've only been with them a few weeks and already having an issue, i don't think i'll be paying for my site anytime soon

I have a similar issue with my site, but my background is grey and for some reason when i open the facebox it pushes all the background images to the right expanding them.  i tried changing the size of the face box info, but it didnt solve my issue with the page box bodys being enlarge widthwise:(  heres my link, and if you click the guild charter  in the info box below the pictures you will see what im talking about

Sorry, is this still an issue? I don't see a problem with your sites and I wasn't around yesterday.
