It is the extra codes that are a problem -- ones that have become
mismatched when you added or edited your text. A TABLE looks like this:
TR stands for TABLE ROW and TD stands for TABLE DATA.
Each "opened" tag (TABLE, TR and TD) must be "closed" by using the same tag
with a forward slash. That tells the browser that this particular row or
data cell is finished. If you forget to close some of the tags, or add
extra unneeded ones, it can cause the contents of the table not to display
at all in some browsers.
In the case of the page you asked about, you had several open TR tags that
had not been closed. In this case, the browser didn't know what to do with
them, so it displayed them at the top of the page. You need to go through
your code and remove any "extras", and/or close all "open" tags.
