I guess you haven't updated the remote html file. It still has the wrong syntax. But the table you're trying to style doesn't even have two rows for the first column to span.

But you only have one row. You cannot span a row that doesn't exist

Guess i Have been using frontpage for too many years where you just click the eraser and erase lines to create colspan and rowspan.
I am doing the page locally and did not upload the corrected syntax. my bad. I will be back
