The first two are fine but the far right one is not.  If you could explain the concept that would be awesome as well.

Change the parent block div's to display:inline-block and remove the margins.

Then just adjust the widths so they fit the full width.

That helped a great deal...thanks.  But the table on the right is still sitting a little low.

I find "float:left" works well in these situations.
<div style="padding: 0px 0px 0px 10px; text-align: left; width: 440px; float: left; display: inline-block;">
<div style="font-size: 0.75em; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); float: left; display: inline-block; width: 160px;">
<div style="width: 180px; font-size: 0.75em; color: rgb(255, 255, 255); margin-left: 15px; float: left; display: inline-block;">
