Page layout with large image- use Table?

Here's my problem.

I have one very large image (covers 3/4 of the page) and seven text boxes. I want to arrange them like this -
Where the vertical line represents the right side of the table (the table is centred, or almost)

|     Text1:_______
|     Text2:_______
|     Text3:_______
|     Text4:_______
|     Text5:_______
|     Text6:_______
|     Text7:_______
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
|
I've tried using table but the Text boxes get distributed evenly from the top to bottom. I want to keep them up on the top.  Here is the HTML I attempted -

<div align = "center">
<table border bordercolor=Black BGCOLOR=White>

<tr><th COLSPAN=1>Cargo Unloaded</th><tr>
<tr><th ROWSPAN=8 VALIGN=TOP><IMG SRC="mypage1.jpg" ALT="SE" BORDER=0></th>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Two</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Three</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Four</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Five</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Six</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Seven</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP>Eight</th></tr>
<tr><th VALIGN=TOP></th></tr>

Are you trying to do something like this?  If not I need a little more explanation, because the code does not in any way reflect the layout you posted:

<div align = "center">
<table border bordercolor=Black BGCOLOR=White>

<tr><td  valign="top><img src="mypage1.jpg" ALT="SE" BORDER=0></td>
<td valign="top">Two<br />
Three<br />
Four<br />
Five<br />
Six<br />
Seven<br />
Eight<br />
Nine<br />
</td></tr>
</table>
</div>

If you posted a link to the page, so we could see it, it might help as well.

Hey, sorry for the poor explanation. I just realized I used the incorrect word -

Where the vertical line represents the right side of the table (the table is centred, or almost)

Should read -

Where the vertical line represents the right side of the image.

Try this and you'll see what I mean - just put a large image in the place of mypage1.jpg. This may have somehting to do with a nested table.

 That was a very Bad Code.. Plz Dont Mind.. how did u get that code ? hope not by any HTML Editors ? u Must have written it.

First of all Note.. that in the Second = Column of the second Row u need to inser another table.. with how many ever rows u need. I mean the Column nExt to the Image Needs to be valign="top" and then a table inserted with any number of rows u need ... i havent done much work on this.. i have edited ur Code with proper Colspans and.. inserting tables where ever nEcessary.

 ANd also note.. Colspan="1" means nothing.. it can be left blank as well.. in ur case u had to Put Colspan="2" anyways check my code and Urs.. :)

Malek,

Your code does not make any sense at all.  That will not come anywhere near close to what you describe as the desired layout.  I suggest  you try out the code samples that have been posted and let us know if any of it is close to what you are trying to do.
