Stumped:: web HTML. Caution, may be OT.

Several weeks ago a friend asked why my www.thought.org page
was so hard to read. She said that part of my text was black
on the deep-blue bg on my RHS. I stopped and checked with
firefox; things looked fine. I've done all markup by hand since
'94, very carefully, with only browsers in the ports tree--
mozilla, firefox, a couple others.
About a week ago I viewed my homepage with KDE Konq and almost
flipped out. One "free" commercial historical calender event
feature was glued to the bottom of my blue bar (<TABLE></TABLE>)
on the RHS of the page. And yep, the new text and other things
were centered in the middle of the long blue rectangle.
Since I have a few weeks now to work on things beside research,
it's time to update my main web page. My friend was using IE;
it may be that Konqueror uses a similar parser to position
things on a .php or .html page.
Other than beginning from Zero and trying to determine exactly
what causes firefox and konq to diverge, do any of you have any
other ideas? I've never learned an HTML editors because of the
learning curve. But:: if/when I come up with a better design for
my home page, I'm willing to try again:: any best (simple) HTML
editors in ports?
I'd be much obliged for any help here.
