What the heck are you doing?!
Why, why, WWWWHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYY?. I'm not helping you until you explain this madness.

alright i see what you are doing with the html part but it is all wrong tables can use height, width, align, valign, and css you do not need all the extra tags so you really need to clean up your html before you work in to php go to w3school.com to help you with the html alright
