You have had an enormous amount of information in response to your
postings, and I appreciate that it might be bewildering, but I suggest
you spend the weekend reading the answers carefully before you ask any
more questions. You are doing things that you have been specifically
advised not to do, and you are not doing the things that you have been
advised to do.

Stop tinkering with your source document and your stylesheet, and
instead try to find out why the browser is displaying your generated
HTML incorrectly. In particular, try to write HTML by hand that displays
correctly, and when that is working, try to find the differences between
that HTML and the HTML that is produced by your transformation output.
