Table alignment

I tried to post this Friday night but for some reason it has not shown
up that I can see, so if that's wrong, sorry.

I'm trying to debug a problem with a group of tables I created to
improve the appearance of information on an annual meeting of an
academic group I'm the volunteer web person for (www.ibr-bbr.org near
the bottom of the page). I'm having two problems with the tables. I
have three main tables and the first of the three contains two tables.
I have two problems that come from the code below.
1. In the first main table I can't get the table header to span 3
columns.

2. After the first inner table, all the following tables are too far
to left and not the same size. Is there a simple way to require them
all to start at the same point. I am guessing the width attribute
would make them all the same size.

Thanks for suggestions.

Ken

Gerard,

Yes, I'd always rather solve my errors myself first. I don't have a
tool that will parse HTML and tell me errors and when I bring up the
Error Console in FIrefox it doesn't say anything of interest. Thanks.

There is something you *can* do, and that is not quote so much
stuff that no one will read. Even a Google Grouper can do this if
they just try a little.
