Outlook 2007 not displaying email signature correctly

Hi everyone,

I've put together an html email signature to use with Outlook 2007 as the outgoing email client. The problem is that for some reason Outlook is pushing the first line of the left hand table cell down one line so there's a blank line. This is the <td> that it's affecting:

CODE
 <td width="160" valign="top" style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 15px; text-align:left; color:#666666; padding-top:5px;">Unit 35<br />
2 Bligh Street<br />
Suburb NSW 2001 </td>

I wondered if someone could check the code to see if it's a code problem or whether it's got something to do with Outlook? All I know is that when I test in a browser it's okay.

Would really appreciate any help.

Thanks - yes your code does work fine, but what about the image and line etc that I have in my original code - how do I get this working also?

I've added back the extra table cells and image from my original code into your new code and it all seems to be working well, but I can't figure what the difference between your code and my old code is in order to make it work.

Can you tell me what you did?
