Yeah, tables are a bit annoying, but very useful. . . Help your self out by setting out the HTML like this:

Table information goes in here

Makes it easier to see where you're going wrong, and its easier to correct the code.... If you're having trouble with other table elements (like columns, cell padding and stuff), ask and i'll see if I can help. . . Or, google for HTML codes and you should find some sites that give you coding tips and little bits of coding to help you, they're very useful.

Table tags:

Tables are easy, just imagine one, then look at the code and understand what is what in the table you imagined (rows, cells etc. ). If you know a bit German you should take a look at "selfhtml", it's the best html guide out there. You will probably understand most of it . http://de.selfhtml.org/html/tabellen/aufbau.htm the first picture here shows the basic layout of a table http://de.selfhtml.org/html/tabellen/gestaltung.htm the first picture gives you a good idea about all these border and spacing-thingies
