Tables do not behave as expected

Description:
I have aligned three parralel tables that display properly in Firefox web
browser until you click on a wikilink, and then the tables change on the screen
and go wonky. In Internet Explorer they just over lap.

The method for aligning the tables was the Table within a table so that text
would not come up the middle.

I feel kinda silly for pulling the panic alarm. I have fixed the tables by
getting rid of the align=right from the two right tables. If you add those back
in, those wierd results happen. The bug is there just not as serious as I
thought and I now how to avoid it now.

Ah, the joys of designing cross-browser. Yes, IE and Firefox don't do things the
same. I closed the bug, which I believe is what your last comment hinted at.
