I'm working on a site. What I would like to acomplish is to keep my navigating buttons on the left.
However every time I insert a picture in another cell, the navigation buttons get messed

Hi Ilianam,

When you use a table, the table will stretch based on the content.  So when the large image is added, that cell stretches the height and your navigation images go with it.

Simply do rowspan=5 on the column with the nav to keep things in place:
<table width="975">
           <tr>
             <td width="5"> </td>
             <td width="244" rowspan="5" valign="top"><img src="/Images/Home5.gif" width="169" height="44" alt="Home" /><br />
             <img src="/Images/Products5.gif" width="237" height="44" alt="Our Products" /><br />
             <img src="/Images/Gallery4.gif" width="169" height="44" alt="Gallery" /><br />
             <img src="/Images/Contact4.gif" width="237" height="44" alt="About Us" /><br />
             <img src="/Images/Contact5.gif" alt="Contact Us" width="237" height="44" align="top" /></td>
             <td width="16" rowspan="5"> </td>
             <td width="690" rowspan="5"><img src="/Images/slide2.jpg" width="446" height="485" /></td>
           </tr>
           <tr>
             <td> </td>
           </tr>
           <tr>
             <td> </td>
           </tr>
           <tr>
             <td> </td>
           </tr>
           <tr>
             <td> </td>
           </tr>
</table>

Damn, I'm slow today.

Okay, you now have two versions on how to solve the problem.  Kechka uses a subtable to keep the navigation spaced together and I use rowspan.

Some things, yes.  But if you really want to do things correctly you need to know the code.
