How do I fix an existing nested table layout?

Somewhere along the way my webpage has gone wonky.  The left navigation table has moved to the lower left portion of the page so now there is a big white gap. I created the page from a template and do not know how to repair nested tables.  I have tried various programs to "move" the table back up (Dreamweaver, Frontpage, Firstpage 6000) and nothing is working. It is likely that someone who designs could easily look at this and notice a missing or extra tag but it is beyond me. Hope someone can assist me as the thought of attempting to redo this is overwhelming:(

The temporarily solution is to modify this bit
<td bgcolor="white" width="148" valign="top">

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0"
 bgcolor="black" id="shell" height="250" width="1000">
  <tr height="50">
    <td colspan="2" bgcolor="white"> 
      <table title="Banner" id="banner" border="0">
          <td><img src="images/banner.jpg" ALIGN=left width="100%"></td>
    <td bgcolor="white" width="148" valign="top"> 

Open in new window


I found the issue.

The height of the content column has grown much taller than the height of your navigation.

On line 23,

Find: <td bgcolor="white" width="148">
Replace with: <td bgcolor="white" width="148" valign="top">

Added the valign="top" to bring it back to the top.

If this does not work, use style="vertical-align: top" instead of valign="top"

Hope this helps.
