Could somebody tell me how to get two things to align to the left, one ahead of the other?

My site is here: http://kitcarruthers.intelligentreconstruc.../indexTEST.html

I want to get those two boxes on the right to snuggle up against the ones on the left with a 150px margin between them. Also is there a better way to get one on top of the other without just using a whole lot of line breaks?

Thank you in advance.

Did you fix this already? I don't see anything right aligned.

Also, the text is so small I can't even read the page.

Ouch. Minimum font size to the rescue.

The font is still too small on some computers? Nuts, okay, I'll do something about it.

And no I haven't got it working yet. Maybe you need to scroll right to find the other divs?

No, actually, in the browser I happened to use the two top items (Intelligent Reconstruction and Tweets) doesn't show up at all. I now looked in the latest FF and the latest Iron (same as Chrome). I see them to the right, but in Iron they are overlapping while they are not in FF.

You have a lot going on there. Too late for me to look at it tonight. I'll give it a go tomorrow if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

Ah well, you've explicitly made them right aligned.

For the red one you have this HTML.
HTML
<div class="side">
<table align="right"><tbody><tr><td align="left">


And this CSS.
CODE

div.side {
    width: 370px;
    align: left;
    margin-left: 150px;
}


The align="right" in the table tag and the large left margin is what causes it. Likewise you have used aligned="right" for the table that contains the iframe with the tweets.

That fixed things start to overlap. I don't find where you have made things float: left with FF's inspector, but you must have. You need to use clear: left where you want things to go below floats.

I'll add that

CODE
align: left;

is not valid CSS, instead use either "text-align" or "float".

CODE
aligned="write"

That's not valid HTML either, neither the attribute nor its value.
