HTML Signature indent issue

I am instigating company wide HTML based signatures. My problem is the signature does not align left when the reply or forward function is used. The HTML code is basically a table within a table to control the text alignment, the table alignment is set to left. Outlook is configured not to use indentation on forwards and replies. The signature was created with Adobe Go Live. If anyone can shed some light on where my code may be going wrong it would be appreciated.

Hi BlueDevilFan,

I've deleted all the e-mail's that were affcted by this (mad clean out over Christmas) so I can't show you a screen dump, but then I managed to find a workaround myself. I found a document on the web that suggested creating a simplified signature just for replies rather than using the more complex original signature for every point of correspondance. I've applied this to every PC and so far it has worked a treat.
