Hi,

There is too much space between the Organized in / Pioneered by text and the Text Input Areas. How do you shrink this amount of space?

<html>
<head>
<title>Prefecture History and Facts</title></head>
<body><h1>Prefecture History / Facts</h1><hr>
<table>
<tr>
<td>4th Prefecture of New York State, U.S.A.
</td>
<tr>
<td width=25>Organized in</td>
<td><input type=text name=organizeddate value=May 2009 readonly></td>
</tr>
<tr><td width=25>Pioneered by</td>
<td><input type=text name=pioneeredby value=Founder of U.S.E. readonly></td>
</tr><td>First Prefects</td><td>1.  Jamison  May 2009</td></tr>
<tr><td><h4>Prefecture History</h4></td>
<td><br><br></td><td>All Prefects will write 3 plus paragraphs describing the history of the county.</td>
</tr>
</table>
<hr></body>

Thanks.

      <tr>
      	<td colspan="2">4th Prefecture of New York State, U.S.A.</td>

      	<tr>

      	</tr>

      	<tr><td>Pioneered by</td><td><input type=text name=pioneeredby value=Founder of U.S.E. readonly></td>

     	</tr><td>First Prefects</td><td>1. Jamison May 2009</td></tr>

      	<tr><td colspan="2"><h4>Prefecture History</h4></td>

      <td><br><br></td><td>All Prefects will write 3 plus paragraphs describing the history of the county.</td>
      </tr>
      </table>

The only bits that I would change are 1, applying a width to a table cell 2, Add colspan="2". It will look perfect after that.

You can also add a nonbreaking space between the words, but the colspan adjustment is probably the best...
