window.open() method formatting issues

I’m using the JavaScript open() method to open a window. But I’m having some formatting issues with the content in the window. Can you please open the “TestHome” file (attached) with a browser? On that page is a link which, when clicked opens the window ("Test" - also attached) that has the issue. I specifically have 3 issues:

1)When the window opens some of the content is scrunched together so that some lines are overlapping each other. This goes away when the window is expanded, but is it possible to prevent them from overlapping each other from the get-go?
2) Even when the window is maximized, the first item still scrolls off the page. I don’t want that. I want to set how far to the right it can go. I tried using the “margin-right” property but that didn’t work.
3) The second item is not flush with the first item. This must be because the second item has no time. But that shouldn’t matter, right? This is CSS. Both items have the same rule, so shouldn't they still be flush?
