I don't understand. What do you mean by "takes the spaces of first 2 column?" Do you want the first column to be wider and push the second column to the right?

Are you talking merging the column with John in it with the column with all of the numbers?

Or possibly something like this - I've rewritten your header row and the first two table rows below.  This merges the first two cells of your header row.  Cut and copy them into your code and see how it works.

<tr>
<th colspan="2"></th>
<th>1st 1/6</th>
<th>2st 12/12</th>
</tr>

<tr>
<td rowspan="12" style="width:10%"><h3><b>John </b></h3</td>
<td>1</td>
<td>Test1</td>
<td>Test1</td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>1</td>
<td>Test1</td>
<td>Test1</td>
</tr>

The second column is filled with numbers. If you merge columns one and two, you'll have the same results as you would if you just eliminated column two.

Do you want the word "John" to move to the top of the first column and line up with 1st 1/6 and 2st 12/12? If so, add "vertical-align: top;" to the style for that cell.

Are you outputting columns or rows?

You've got output column or do you really mean row as in

abc --> 1st row
abc -->  2nd row
abc -->  3rd rwo

You'll want to remove the margins from your H3 element.
h3 { margin: 0; }

And do you really need four columns?

It seems that if you use only three there are no problems - any reason for the blank first column?
