    JN1980 Level 1

          I believe the problem you are having can be simplified if you consider this
          example -

          Put a 2 row by 2 column table on the page. Merge the two right hand cells
          into a single column. Put an image into each left cell, and you will see
          that they merge vertically seamlessly. Now begin to add content to the
          merged cell on the right and you will see that at some point you will have
          forced the two left cells to begin to split apart vertically. The more
          content you add to the right, the further apart the two left cells will get.
          See what I mean?

          To solve the problem, instead of making your page sit in a single table,
          have it in several nested tables. You should be able to put a two column
          table on the page with a nested table in each column. Put your navigation
          in the left nested table, and the
          content in the right nested table. Now, changes to either of the inner
          table's
          structure will not affect either of the inner nested tables.
