Java Report Alignment problem

Hi Experts...
I have the code below which i use to send mail in html format.

The html report is getting prepared properly and the mail feature is working too.
The problem is :Say for example in my html report i have three HTML tables to be displayed they all take center alignment by default and appear one below the other.

When i explicitly add the left alignment code all the tables appear next to one another instead of one below the other.
Please help...
Code for html report:
                           String htmlString = "";
  htmlString += "<html>" + sep;
htmlString += "<head>" + sep;

htmlString += "<title>Your title</title></head><body>";


htmlString += "<table> <tr> <td> stuff</td><td>antother cell</td> </tr>" +
"<tr> <td> stuff</td><td>antother cell</td> </tr>" +
" <tr> <td> stuff</td><td>antother cell</td> </tr></table></body></html>";

Code for mailing:
public void sendEmail(String htmlString, Vector OAEmailAddresses,
                      Vector emailAddressesCC, String userAddress, String subject)
   {


 String adrFrom = userAddress;
      String signature = "";
     String sepp = System.getProperty("line.separator");


       String body = bodyText;

   InternetAddress [] intAdd;
    InternetAddress [] intAddcc;


  intAdd = new InternetAddress[OAEmailAddresses.size()];

    intAddcc = new InternetAddress[emailAddressesCC.size()];



       try {
  for(int j=0; j<OAEmailAddresses.size(); j++)
    intAdd[j] = new InternetAddress((String)OAEmailAddresses.elementAt(j));

    for(int j=0; j<emailAddressesCC.size(); j++)
    intAddcc[j] = new InternetAddress((String)emailAddressesCC.elementAt(j));



    Properties props = new Properties();

	
	props.put("mail.smtp.host", "mailhub.company.com");
	Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(props, null);
	    Message msg = new MimeMessage(session);
	    msg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(adrFrom));
 

	    msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, intAdd);
            msg.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.CC, intAddcc);
             msg.setSubject(subject );


        msg.setSentDate(new java.util.Date());

	    msg.setText(htmlString);
           msg.setHeader("Content-Type","text/html");  // this is important header

	    Transport.send(msg);
           }
       catch (Exception e) {System.out.println("Error sending e-mail : " + e.toString()); e.printStackTrace(); }
     System.out.println("E-mail message sent!");

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

 
for_yanCommented:
In general you should not have </body></html> after each table - these usually come only in the end of the whole web page

Why do you need to add align - what is it that you wanted to achieve with it?

gaugetaAuthor Commented:
@for_yan:Sorry for the above code.I just gave a sample of how it will look.
Each table does not have a </body></html> with it.

The valid code is shown below.

The effect i want to achieve is display table left aligned and and one below the other and not next to one another which is happening now.
Please help...
htmlString +="<left><table align=\"left\"><tr><td><h3>Final Status: Pass</h5></h3></td></tr></table></left>"; htmlString +="<left><table align=\"left\"><tr><td><h3>Final Status2: Pass</h5></h3></td></tr></table></left>";

Does it send email ain any form?

If it does go to your emal - double click on it, then right-click in the middle and slecet "ViewSource"

Then you'll see notepad (or other editor ) window with html code.
Save the contents of that window to any .txt or .html file and post this file here - I'll correct your html
and tell you how to modify it to have them one under another

This deivision recommendation above shoudll work - if you understadn it from what I wrote above - you can give it a try

Of course remove tehse tags <left> - theye dhouldf not be there <table align=\"left\"> - these should stay

htmlString +="<table align=\"left\"><tr><td><h3>Final Status: Pass</h5></h3></td></tr></table>"; htmlString +="<table align=\"left\"><tr><td><h3>Final Status2: Pass</h5></h3></td></tr></table>";
