your missing the  <td  on the first row, as well as you have to aligns in that cell.  you needed valign.  Here is the corrected code. For future reference, use all caps or all lowercase inside of your tags(just better practice, but you never know when IE is gonna mess with you)  Also, quote your attribues (ex.  valign="top")  A good wysiwyg editor will help you.  Dreamweaver if you can afford it or try something like coffee cup editor http://www.coffeecup.com/

koolie,

I am not sure what you mean about the missing <td> in the first row.  I could not locate this part.

Hi,

Please read the modified code below.

<html>
<head>
<title>Column Span</title>
<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" />
<meta content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1400" name=GENERATOR />
</head>
<body>
<table cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="0" width="400px" border="1">
  <tbody>
  <tr>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="100px">This is my first table cell in the top row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="100px">This is my second table cell in the top row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="100px">This is my third table cell in the top row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="100px">This is my fourth table cell in the top row. </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="100px">This is my first table cell in the bottom row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="300px" colSpan=3">This is my second table cell in the bottom row.</td>
  </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
</body>
</html>

If you need to make table width = 75% then also use % for the cell widths like below:

<table cellSpacing="0" cellPadding="0" width="75%" border="1">
  <tbody>
  <tr>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="25%">This is my first table cell in the top row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="25%">This is my second table cell in the top row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="25%">This is my third table cell in the top row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="25%">This is my fourth table cell in the top row. </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="25%">This is my first table cell in the bottom row. </td>
    <td vAlign="top" align="left" width="75%" colSpan=3">This is my second table cell in the bottom row.</td>
  </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

Since I saw that you wanted the same width, I used 25% for the cells. However you should change them according to column number (20% for 5 columns).
Also, you don't have to set width property for the second row since the first row will do the job (in this sample).

I hope it helps.

typo:
colSpan=3" should be colSpan="3" in the modified codes in my post above.
