setting style.display to "block" is not the default for table cells. Seems to work a lot better if you just use an empty string:
       function showDisplay() {

           var obj1;
           var obj2;
           var obj3;
           var obj4;
           //Box2
           obj1 = document.getElementById("B2Header");
           obj2 = document.getElementById("B2Header2");
           obj3 = document.getElementById("B2Header1");

           obj1.style.display = "";
           obj2.style.display = "";
           obj3.style.display = "";
           var i;
           for (i = 1; i <= 2; i++) {
               var objDep = document.getElementById("GVal" + i);
               objDep.style.display = "";
           }

           //Box3
           obj1 = document.getElementById("B3Header");
           obj2 = document.getElementById("B3Header2");
           obj3 = document.getElementById("B3SHeader1");
           obj4 = document.getElementById("B3PHeader1");

           obj1.style.display = "";
           obj2.style.display = "";
           obj3.style.display = "";
           obj4.style.display = "";
           var i;
           for (i = 1; i <= 2; i++) {
               var objDep = document.getElementById("OSVal" + i);
               objDep.style.display = "";
           }
           for (i = 1; i <= 2; i++) {
               var objDep = document.getElementById("OPVal" + i);
               objDep.style.display = "";
           }

           //Box4
           obj1 = document.getElementById("B4Header");
           obj2 = document.getElementById("B4Header2");
           obj3 = document.getElementById("B4SHeader1");
           obj4 = document.getElementById("B4PHeader1");

           obj1.style.display = "";
           obj2.style.display = "";
           obj3.style.display = "";
           obj4.style.display = "";
           var i;
           for (i = 1; i <= 2; i++) {
               var objDep = document.getElementById("WSVal" + i);
               objDep.style.display = "";
           }
           for (i = 1; i <= 2; i++) {
               var objDep = document.getElementById("WPVal" + i);
               objDep.style.display = "";
           }
       

       }

Open in new window

Note: I only changed the javascript, possibly also need to change code behind.

COBOLdinosaurCommented:
Robert is right about the display property. the default value for the display property for the TD tag is table-cell and setting the display property on any table element will generally destabilize the page and screw up the table layout.  That is one of the reasons that using table for layout was abandoned by most developers a dozen years ago. The rendering is often unpredictable because the CSS parser may set the wrong method for the RenderObject of affected elements.

It is not surpriseing that compatibility mode works okay because older versions of IE did not follow the standards and the Trident rendering engine used by IE uses MS "standards" in compatibility mode instead of the recognized international standards everyone else follows. IE has been upgraded over the last 3 versions to be about 80-85% standards compliant.
