button not centered vertically inside a table

I have the following code, no matter what alignment i set the code with the form inside the table shows the button higher than the rest of the fields. How can I have it displayed in the middle of the cell, cell has enough width for the button to be displayed properly.

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                      <tr>
                        <td bgcolor="eceef4"><img src="../../Images/blank.gif" alt="" width="10" height="25" /></td>

Try playing with the forms height
<form style="height:20px;">

Try using an Image.

Buttons are always tricky to align with images,
   <script type="text/javascript">
            function submitForm()
            {
              document.myForm.submit();
            }
             
            function formAction()
            {
              document.newForm.action = "ACTION HERE";             
            }
        </script>

Open in new window



<input type="image" src="view.png"   onclick="javascript: submitForm()" class="bodytext" id="Download" value="view">

OR
<input type="image" src=""view.png" name="image"60" class="bodytext" id="Download" value="view">

How about trying this.

<input name="Download" type="submit" class="bodytext" id="Download" value="view" style="margin-top:15px;">

Giving it a margin-top:15px;

See if this will give you the results you are looking for.

Using margin top centers the image but makes the whole row twice the height.

As it turns out it is NOT the button that pushes everything up, but the form inside that cell.  :(  ...

I just tested it, and changing the Height of the Form itself, will change the cell of the table.
