I'm trying to create an html layout, but having a problem with the div's and background-color

when I put the div tag withing a table <td> the color does not render
this shows as white "><div style="background-color: #525252"></div>"

I'm sure this is something simple, any help would be greatly appreciated






<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="width: 100%">
                  <tr>
                        <td style="width: 212px"><div style="background-color: #525252"></div></td>
                        <td><div style="background-color: #2775f5"></div></td>
                  </tr>
            </table>
