Added Content in Power CMS breaks page layout

Before adding content to this home page, it looks like this:http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/
I added PCMS content to manage the 4 boxes on the page and the body copy underneath them. Tested it and I can swap the text and pics in those areas just fine but it breaks the layout of the page in the 'hero' div and now looks like this:http://outofchaos.net/gsc/www/index-bak.php
Attaching the index and css files. Please take a look and let me know what you'd suggest. Thank you.

Can I see a copy of both the working and not working pages? I need to compare the two.

The non-working index is index.php attached. The working is index-working.php attached.

It looks like the issue is that the two pages have a different gallery and not the added cms.

The images in the gallery for the second link are larger, which shouldn't be affected by the addition of the CMS code. The copy of the page you sent me doesn't seem to have different gallery code, so I'm confused.

Can you give me FTP access to the pages so I can debug them directly? That would allow me to figure it out.

It's the same gallery but one file has the CMS and the other doesn't but you can take a look. Thanks

That FTP information doesn't seem to work. Please test it and make sure it doesn't include typos.

I was able to log in with FileZilla, for some reason it wouldn't work in Dreamweaver.

I found the conflict and have resolved this issue. It had to do with having the gallery and cms installed into different sub-directories and a global variable getting overwritten. I renamed the variable in the gallery files to prevent a conflict.

It's better but there is still a glitch. Index-bak.php looked fine(after your changes) when I first looked so I wanted to test to make sure using the CMS wouldn't break the page I went to the CMS Admin and modified the caption on the 4th box from 'Import' to 'Imported' and now the 4 boxes instead of being horizontally aligned now stair-step down.
Your help on this funky issue is much appreciated.

It is still displaying correctly for me... what browser are you looking at?
