Live journal formatting advice

Geeking Out
Hey guys. I need some advice from anyone savvy with the technical aspects of LJ.

I was looking through my Motels and Accommodations posts and noticed that all the entires are messed up - in terms of the formatting. It's annoying because I remember when I posted them (all those years ago) they looked fine, but now the formatting is all over the place. When I made them I used tables so I could control where the images and text was (centred, neat, in block text etc). I think, when LJ went to their mobile version, everything got skewed.

The advice I need is on how to fix it. How do people go about formatting complicated image and text posts these days (though I suspect the answer is - nobody does!). I am thinking I probably need to create all the information in Photoshop and post as one big image (or several blocks of pre-formatted images)?? Or maybe there's a more basic form of formatting I could use? I have a mix of small and large pictures and text I want in blocks.

I am inspired to fix them (somehow) and hopefully update the resource to include Season 8-11. :)

Thanks if anyone has some ideas. <33

ETA: From the comments below it seems like it depends on the browser. Firefox is fine but maybe other browsers aren't? I use Safari and Google Chrome and they look yuk. Why the difference?! Stoopid technology...

I just had a quick look and seaons 1 & 2 look perfect but Wallpapers & Murals is askew - there are a couple of pics that don't display and some text runs really wide across my page. I was using Chrome and a 13" macbook, if that makes any difference. But I have noticed that quite a few websites either don't work or are really glitchy with Chrome, and work perfectly in Safari.

Thanks for taking a look. That's how they all look on my computer - through Safari and Chrome. So weird. But others assure me they look fine - so I'll probably just leave them.
