I've tried adding a few <p> breaks and in the HTML editor (Expression Web..I know, I know.. ) it's finely below the red text but then when I preview it in the browser it sits in the middle...

Many thanks to all those who are willing to help this newbie HTML designer...

    Well the code has quite a few mistakes in it.

    It could be any number of items. There are 245 validation errors, granted a lot are from a trickle down affect. [Invalid] Markup Validation of - W3C Markup Validator

    There are outdated tags used also eg, font.
    p tags that are empty I assume are be using as a line break, which should be line breaks. <br />
    And numerous other items that should be addressed and fixed.

    You have an open <h3> that is not closed and background-color: FFFFCC; is not correct and not style is not closed. The font tag is not a valid tag and the color line is not closed.

    <div style="width: 450px; border: 3px dashed Black; padding: 30px; background-color: FFFFCC;>
    <h3> <font color="
    <h3 class="noindent">
    <input type="checkbox" name="check" value="ON" class="style26"><span class="style25">Yes! Please Reserve
    My Copy!</span></h3>

    Which is most likely breaking the one that the link is under.

    You also have some color codes that are missing the # and some duplicate ID references. ID's are to only be used once.

    I would start by fixing some of those items, many of them could be the issue or cause other issues.

    The <h3> you've got just before that link has a defined height. Which is okay, but you've got empty <p> tags there to force the link down the page. The tags are like this:

    <p style="text-align: center">


    Those empty tags will frequently get ignored by the browser. Try putting a non-breaking space -&nbsp;- in each and see if that forces the link down the page.

    They should look like this:
    <p style="text-align: center">&nbsp;


    Adding that space forces the browsers to treat the <p> tag as a paragraph.

    FYI: Truly piss poor way to code, but it should work nonetheless.

    Take Care,
