In the table data tag (<TD>) that holds the news, what you should do is set the valign to top.  Default is valign=middle.  Heres what I mean:

<table border=0>
      <tr>
            <td align=left valign=top><img src="nav.gif" usemap="#navigation"></td>

            <td align=left valign=top>Windark's News, and Other Information</td>
      </tr>
</table>

That sort of thing ought to do it for you.  In case you want to experiment, the "align" attribute can be set to "left" (the default), "right" or "center" and the "valign" attribute (meaning "vertical alignment") can be set to "top", "middle" (the default), or "bottom".

If this doesn't solve your problem, please post a url so I can see your code, and make the right suggestions.
