Can you help me format my table?

edited May 2008 in Site Matters
I have troubles with a table in this comment: whatever I do the table (the part were the text is sans-serif, small and blue) is preceded by a much too long white space that I did not put there. How can I get rid of it. Here follows a table to test it here. (Problem is also that it always appears allright in the preview…)
Cell 1Cell 2
Cell 3Cell 4
And here is its code:
<table><tbody><tr><td>Cell 1</td><td>Cell 2</td></tr><tr><td>Cell 3</td><td>Cell 4</td></tr></tbody></table>

Now I hope the problem will show when I post this…

Edit: And damn! it doesn't.

Here is the code from my other post :
Ok, here's what I got, summarized in one post.
<table>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td><b>Franklin Skeen</b></td>
<td>Complicated history</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><b>Stats</b> (15d6)
- Acuity 3d6
- Heart 5d6
- Body 3d6
- Will 4d6
</td>
<td><b>Traits</b> (4d4 2d6 2d10)
- I am God’s youngest Watchdog ever 1d10
- My mother died after I successfully exorcising the demon that possessed her 1d6
- I know the Words 1d6
- I have the eyes of an Angel 1d10
- I am a cute kid and will obviously soon grow into a handsome man 2d4
- I can shoot 2d4
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><b>Relationships </b> (5d6 2d8)
[Blood 1d6]
- Aunt Marsha 2d6
(could I take a d4 instead of a d6 for my sisters ?)
</td>
<td><b>Belongings</b>
- Coat 2d6, lovingly quilted from bark brown and mossy green patches ; his aunt was the main seamstress, his older sisters having refused the job.
- Accurate gun 2d6+1d4
- Fast horse 2d6
- Sturdy rug, with mountain people’s motif 2d6
- Dog-eared Book of life 1d6
- Consecrated Earth from my ma's tomb 1d4
</td>
</tr>
</tbody></table>


And here is what it produces here:

    vanilla preserves the line breaks in the HTML code. Try condensing to spaghetti code.

    vs

  • In the second case, I have a long string of

    <table><tr><td>…


    instead of nicely indented code.
