    There are a couple of ways that you could do this. One is to put the text in your table cells in paragraphs, and then create a style rule to add a margin to paragraphs inside cells like this:


    td p {

        margin: 10px;



    Alternatively, you could add padding to all cells, and apply a class to remove it from cells with images:


    td {

        padding: 10px;


    td.image {

        padding: 0;



    Apply the image class to cells with images.
