Windows 7: Internet Explorer HTML <form> tag bug

Internet Explorer HTML <form> tag bug

There is a bug that completely changes the tables I have set and it only happens in IE. Pics are attached that show what is supposed to happen (in Chrome and FF) and what happens in IE. Please Help me! I can provide code if needed, but I have narrowed down the problem to something with the <form> tag. The form tag is inside a table which is inside another table.

Nevermind, I fixed it. The problem was the <form>. I do not know why it did this but that was the tag that screwed everything up. My fix was to use <select> without using the <form>. It is working now!

You need to remember that browsers will interpret HTML scripts in different ways; IE is known to not follow the correct standards for interpreting HTML scripts.
