Something like this perhaps:

<table width="953" height="316" border="0" bgcolor="#CCCCCC" hspace="20" align="center" class="bordesred" style="filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(endColorstr='#C0CFE2', startColorstr='#FFFFFF', gradientType='0');" >
  <tr>
    <td width="42" >
    <p></td >
    <td width="352"><p><span title="mouse over description here">normal text</p> </td><td width="42"></td>
    <td width="499" rowspan="4">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  </table>

Background gradients only work in CSS3 and modern browsers. If your users are going to be using IE, I would suggest using a background image.  

And to be completely honest, I'd probably use a background image anyways. You'll get a cleaner looking gradient and you don't have to worry about the browser trying to generate the CSS3 every time the user refreshes.

you could apply it directly to the TABLE element, or wrap it in a div. Personally, I'd wrap it in a div tag, and style the div like so:

That way if you have multiple tables, you retain the ability to style them separately, which could be useful.

#div.table {
 /* fallback for very old browsers */
  background-color: #810303;
  
  /* Safari 4-5, Chrome 1-9 */
  background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#970101), to(#5f0202));
  
  /* Safari 5.1, Chrome 10+ */
  background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
  
  /* Firefox 3.6+ */
  background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
  
  /* IE 10 */
  background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
  
  /* Opera 11.10+ */
  background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);

  /* basic fallback */
  linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
}

CSS3 PIE is very useful for older IE browsers if you want to support them. Add the following to the above after downloading the package:

#div.table {behavior: url(path/to/PIE.htc);
 /* fallback for very old browsers */
  background-color: #810303;
 
  /* Safari 4-5, Chrome 1-9 */
  background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#970101), to(#5f0202));
 
  /* Safari 5.1, Chrome 10+ */
  background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
 
  /* Firefox 3.6+ */
  background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
 
  /* IE 10 */
  background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);
 
  /* Opera 11.10+ */
  background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);

  /* basic fallback */
  linear-gradient(top, #970101, #5f0202);

  /* PIE fallback */
  -pie-background:
}

Hope that helps!
