I would like to create a div tags horizontally without the tables  , but i find that if i create a table first and put the div tag in it,it allows me to place the image or text neatly,  what do any one suggest?

div is a block element which means that it expands across the entire page. In lay mans terms that means you can't have more than one in a row. What you can use instead is the span tag which is only slightly different but allows you to have more than one per row.

You can make a div not block by using some css code.
#yourdivID {

display:inline;

}

try using float property
eg
div.leftDiv
{
   float: left;
}

div.rightDiv
{
   float: right;
}

<div>
   <div class='leftDiv'>A left div</div>
   <div class='rightDiv'>A right div</div>
</div>

Not sure that I understand what you mean then. Could you explain further or provide an image mockup of what you are after?

I am attaching a snap shot in my word doc, my problem is nothing is uniform, if i try to move something over it moves one of the div tags to the right or to the bottom of the page, and i tried to add another  div tag in the first row and that div box moves to the bottom
thank you for your help
