Can you provide screenshots that demonstrate that?
If there is a problem, it should be fixable with CSS.
I don't have time to deconstruct the page and make it like it was when it failed again.
No, you don't. That's probably what is causing your problems.
How do you know what I need?
The real page has several boxes with borders and text nested inside each other. The boxes are different colors. I can't get the borders to render in the same way if I use divs. The margins render in totally different ways. One of the browsers totally leaves out the margin when the div is inside a table cell.
And the div will NOT expand to fill the table cell. That is the primary problem, and you are dancing around it.
