i have a table that outputs my results from a query.
i am having trouble figuring out how to change how it is displayed.

this is how it looks now: table

i would like it to be output in this way:
id then a break
username then a break
comment

so its vertically instead of horizontally showing the data.
please can anyone advise on how to do this please
$row_count = 0;
$output = '<table width="600" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" class="table1"><tr><td width="41" align="center" bgcolor="#3366CC"><span class="style1">PostID</span></td><td width="149" align="center" bgcolor="#3366CC"><span class="style1">Name</span></td><td width="384" align="center" bgcolor="#3366CC"><span class="style1">Comment</span></td></tr>';
$result = mysql_query("SELECT PostID, PostText FROM posts",$db) or die (mysql_error());
While( $rows = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
$PostID = $rows['PostID'];
$PostText = $rows['PostText'];

$row_style = ($row_count % 2) ? "row1" : "row2";
$output .= '<tr class="'.$row_style.'"><td>'.$PostID.'</td><td>'.$PostText.'</td></tr>';
$row_count = $row_count + 1;
}
//Free Results
mysql_free_result($result);
$output .= '</table>';
?>

from_mysql_obj = document.getElementById( 'from_mysql' );
from_mysql_obj.innerHTML = '<? echo $output; ?>';

But there is no query selection for the name, you would have to add this to the query
