Hi
Please re-explain, I see you placed the cell "content" on the right of the page. Switching the two <td> elements will move "Content" cell to the left. Is this what you meant?...

I want the cell at the right to be left. But even I resize the width it stays as it now

Hi rossoneris,
If I understand you correclty, then you want the cell containing the word 'content" to be swapped with the cell on it's left. If this is the case, then the solution is indeed to swap the code like so:

<td width="430" height="600" valign="top" colspan="2">content</td>
<td width="430" height="600" valign="top" colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>

Otherwise, please repost your code and put in the cells the words "right" and "left" so we can help out.

Thanks

Are you wanting the contents cell to the left or just the word content?

If you are looking for the entire cell to be moved then alien's solution is correct.

If you wont the word content to be moved then use this.

<td width="430" height="600" valign="top" colspan="2" style="text-align: right">content</td>

If its something else, please explain in more detail.

Ive been looking at this more and I think I understand your problem.

The problem is with column span the above column widths affect the ones below it. try this code...it should work for you.
<table border="1" width="100%">
	<tr>
		<td width="860" height="100" valign="top" colspan="4">&nbsp;</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td height="27" valign="top" class="style2">&nbsp;</td>
		<td height="27" valign="top" class="style1">&nbsp;</td>
		<td width="41" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
		<td width="33" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td height="600" valign="top" colspan="2">content</td>
		<td width="430" height="600" valign="top" colspan="2">&nbsp;</td>
	</tr>
</table>

It helper - Yes - the cell must be right as you give in the example- but the 3 columns in the small row must be at the right side

I'm confused. Are you sure you're not mixing up what are columns and what are rows?

<tr> determines a row in a table
<td> is a cell within that row.

You don't really define columns in html tables.

Please clarify your question. The above html doesn't have 3 columns, but rather 3 rows with 4 columns.

Ok here you go. Had to create two seperate tables to get what you require.
<html>
 
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="da">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>New Page 6</title>
    <style type="text/css">
        .style1
        {
            width: 147px;
            height: 489px;
        }
        .style2
        {
            height: 489px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
 
<table border="1" width="100%">
	<tr>
		<td width="860" height="100" valign="top" colspan="4">&nbsp;</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td width="887" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
		<td width="42" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
		<td width="41" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
		<td width="33" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>
 
    <table width="100%" border="1">
        <tr>
            <td class="style1" valign="top">
                Content</td>
            <td class="style2">
                </td>
        </tr>
    </table>
 
</body>

The first column in the third row, cannot be more narrow than the first column in the row above. All columns must be equal in width.

Try the following, it will acheive mostly what you are looking for

<html>
 
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="da">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>New Page 6</title>
</head>
 
<body>
 
<table border="1" width="100%">
        <tr>
                <td height="100" valign="top" colspan="5">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
                <td width="30" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
                <td width="744" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
                <td width="42" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
                <td width="41" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
                <td width="33" height="27" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
                <td width="30" height="430" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
                <td width="860" height="430" valign="top" colspan="4">content</td>
        </tr>

    <tr>
      <td colspan="6" width="960" height="155"><div id="altd">

    </tr>
  <tr>
      <td width="750" height="25" ID="menu" bgcolor="#b71d21">menu</td>
       <td width="20" height="25" bgcolor="#000000"></td>
       <td width="40" height="25" bgcolor="#000000">&nbsp;</td>
      <td width="40" height="25"  bgcolor="#000000">&nbsp;</td>
      <td width="40" height="25" bgcolor="#000000">&nbsp;</td>
      <td width="70" height="25" ID="sp" align="right" bgcolor="#000000">sprog</td>
    </tr>       
          <td width="960" height="535" valign="top" colspan="6">
