You need to close the td cell properly:

<td COLSPAN="2">Français | English | Login | Sign-up</td>

You may also want to add the nowrap attribute to the 100 pixel wide cell:

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body bgcolor="gray">
<table border="1" WIDTH="100%">
  <tr>
    <td ALIGN="center" COLSPAN="2"><h3>Title</h3></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td COLSPAN="2">Français | English | Login | Sign-up</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td width="100" nowrap><h4>News</h4></td>
    <td VALIGN="top" width="100%">Bonjour</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
