    One reason is that the <!DOCTYPE> you're using sets browsers to what's called "Quirks Mode" in which they all have non-standard variations in how they render pages. You need to use a complete <!DOCTYPE> statement which sets browsers to "Standards Compliance Mode" in which they're all at least trying to behave according to the W3C Standards. Search on "DOCTYPE switch" and you'll find some advice on choosing a suitable <!DOCTYPE> for your pages.

    I really think your problem especially across browsers is you laying it out using tables. CSS is strong enough where that is not necessary or considered good practice.
    If you were to change the css of your website you could easily fix your problem.
