Creating a Table with different columns and rows

Hello there !!

I need to create a table that looks exactly or almost the same as the one here:

www.aml.com.mx/staff.php

The thing is that I need to create this page but in text instead of using images. How can I create it?

Please is urgent.
If you give me the code and steps, I'll give you 500 points instead of 250

this is the best I could do, but the fonts they were using in those images
are not one of standard fonts (I've checked with the simple OCR utility
that has scanned all of my fonts for easier recognition, and none of the
fonts matched)

here is the code:



<HTML>

<HEAD>
      <STYLE>
            .table_caption {
                  color: #BAB0AA;
                  font-size: 28px;
                  font-weight:bold;
                  height: 50;
            }
            .cell_caption {
                  color: #FF7200;
                  font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
                  font-size: 14px;
                  font-weight: bold;
            }
            .cell_text {
                  color: #FF7200;
                  font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
                  font-size: 11px;
            }
            .cell_mark {
                  color: #BAB0AA;
                  font-size: 12px;
            }
      </STYLE>
</HEAD>

Rather than giving you code straight out.. here's a relatively simple example of what you're looking for. It's basic HTML code.. you may want to look into it further.

<table border="0"  cellspacing="0" width="100%">
<tr>
  <td colspan="3" bgcolor="#EDE1E0">Title</td>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td>Name1<br>Name2</td>
  <td>Name3<br>Name4</td>
  <td>Name5</td>
</tr>
</table>

This will make your links blue (underline). If you want to avoid it, change:

      .cell_text {
           color: #FF7200;
           font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
           font-size: 11px;
      }

into:

    .cell_text, .cell_text a, cell_text a:visited {
      color: #FF7200;
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      font-size: 11px;
      text-decoration: none;
    }
