    First off all, the nesting of tables is likely to be part of the problem. You also need to validate your code - check for this: <td width=800"" height="20" as well as a number of other errors.

    I would suggest doing this site in CSS. It's a simple site, and should be easy to do, and will save you a lot of effort in the nesting as well as providing much cleaner, SEO-friendly code.

    However, I think the specific single fix you need is where your blue line images appear, the line is 800 pixels wide, and then is followed by a space before the end of the table cell ("> </td>"). Since the area available is 800px, the space has to wrap down a line, and is padding out the table cell.

    The problem could be that you have "enters" between images

    Try to wriite them in a row.
    <img .../><img .../>

    It's been a while, but I did indicate the problem - the asker had a table cell that was 800px wide and had a 800px wide image and a space in that cell.
