I just added the doctype declaration:


That seems to work better now.  The only peculiarity is when I display full
screen in Mozilla, one div goes all the way to the right and the rest go to
the left. 
That does not happen in Opera or IE.  Any suggestions there?

You'll want to start with a valid doctype for the page.

Rendering Mode and Doctype Switching

Without it, the various browsers go into different quirks mode and you'll
never be able to get them to render consistently. A valid doctype will at
put them all into standards mode and then you can wage battle with the
browser based bugs that are likely the cause of the differences.
