If you're using IE, an easy solution is to use the bottom attribute of position:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<style type="text/css">
div table {position:absolute;bottom:2px;left:0px;}
div table tr td {text-align:center;background:#666;color:#fff;font-family:tahoma;font-size:12px;cursor:hand;}
</head><body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=100%><tr>
  <td width="13" style="background:#fff;"><img src="blank.gif" width="13"></td><td>Nav1</td><td>Nav2</td><td>Nav3</td><td>Nav4</td><td>Nav5</td>
