Problem with php display

I'm having a problem with a display with php.

Here's the deal and it may seem complicated.

In Manhatten a block measures 200 feet, so each side of the street the frontage of all the stores should total 200 feet.  
Go trust a client to make sure the data is correct!  Sometimes the block was 130' and sometimes it was 275'.  So what I did was add up all the frontages on left and right sides of the page (2 different variables) , divide those number into 200.  This way I could multiply the individual store frontage by the result that I got to set the height of the rows in the left and right tables for each store front.

The logic works but the results are not correct. I've checked the frontages and they do add up.
The display in the lower left corner shows the left and right frontage totals.  "lm" is the left multiplier that I'm using.

Attachments:
1:  good_screen_1.odg
This is what the screen should look like if the client entered the data correctly.  Left and right  both add up to 200 and the multiplier is one.

2: good_screen_2.odg
Dummy can't add the left side.  So I take the 150 and multiply it by 1.3333333.  It works

3: bad_screen.odg
This is where it gets weird.  The left, right and multiplier are the same as in "good_screen_1", but the left hand table looks like it's dropped by maybe one or two pixels.  This forces the "south" street names to be forced to the right.

I hope I've explained this clearly.

good_screen_2.odg

What is the question?  And what program should we use to open "odg" files?

All 3 screenshots have more or less difference in height, by 1 to 3 pixels.  It looks like it's dependent on number of storefronts, so my best guess is the "border" attribute is affecting the display.
Better if you can post your code, where you prepare the "store block", to this ticket.

And if posting code is not an option, one of the solutions you may take is to wrap the stores divs (and the middle avenue) in a wrapper div, so that the bottom street is always below it.

I modified the css to as follows:

#map_wrap
{
      width: auto;
      height: 220px;
}

Then added the following to the code:
            <div id="map_wrap">

The attached file had the display code for the page.  It does get complicated (Sorry about that).

It's "Open Office".

I cannot investigate the root cause without having your code for the entire page.  By looking at your php-let "map_lr.php" my guess is that the border of your <tr>'s are causing the misalignment, so you'll always get a higher table on the side with more stores (hence more <tr>'s).
Maybe you can provide a test user/pass so that I can have a look at the Lansco page itself?

Anyways, 2 questions:
1) did you put the horizontal streets outside of the new "map_wrap" div?
2) does it still have the same display problem after you added the div?

You may also try adding the following css styles:
1) add overflow: auto; to your #map_wrap css block.
2) add style="clear: left;" to the tag where you display the "south" street names

Good luck!

Attached is the entire code.

The url is

The login is "test" and the password is "fred".

Goto "walk by map".  Start with the address of "390" and the street "5th".

Both sides are at 200'

Start walking up the street (address +).
The next block both sides are screwed up but the display using the multiplier is correct.

Go one more block up and the display is screwed up.
a) The left side has only 1 building ,2 stores and the frontage is correct
b) The right side has 2 buildings, 5 stores and the frontage is incorrect.

I can see that the left is a couple of pixels longer.  This just doesn't make sense.

If you can't help with this,  how can I move this question to css/html.

Thanks
Glenn
