Div after Table

Hello expert,

Have several <DIV>s that are positioned using statements like
Style="position: absolute; left: 10px; top: 100px

Then a table.

Then a last <DIV>  that has a link to the main page.
Abbreviated version of the page copied herewith below.

Have positioned the last <DIV> beneath the table using
the Style="position method but every time an addition
to the table is made the position of the last <DIV> has
to be lowered to get it off the table and below the table.

Tried putting the table in a <DIV> by itself hoping that
the last<DIV> would fall in line after the table <DIV>.
No luck. The last<DIV> still writes over the graphic at the very top.

How to make the  last<DIV> write after the table or after the table <DIV>?

Is there a reason you are using position absolute? I don't recommend to use position absolute unless necessary. When you use position absolute you remove that element from the layout and tell it to be position based on the page. I removed all the position absolute and used instead display inline-block.

Here is the code sample I hope it helps. Let me know if you have more questions.
