multiple menus overlap on left hand side of webpage


I am seeking some help, I use siteassist pro template and menu writer to build my site in Dreamweaver CS3 on a PC with windows XP. Internet explorer 8.

My site had displayed perfectly for me in IE8 with correct menu functions and spacing.

Uploaded my site today, however the left hand side navigation does not display correctly.
Direct link to site

This applies to all pages of my website.

Understanding that one could use multiple menus, I added x3, complete with different colour themes, for navigation to my templates on LHS.

To space each I inserted table between is code for the first top table.<table width="100%" height="41" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="5" bordercolor="#ECE9D8" bgcolor="#D4E5FF">
This allowed spacing and stopped overlap when building the site.

This clearly cannot have been the correct approach, and now after uploading, the top menu displays, but the middle and lower menu displays only reveal when a mouse is placed over them.
They have lost their spatial separation and overlap.

Could you kindly advise how I may be able to correct this.
I would like to preserve the three distinct menus rather than make a long one.

Sorry I am only a beginner at CSS and Dreamweaver CS3 so simple instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Your help is much appreciated.
With regards
