place navigation correctly

I have a strict doc type: However, I am still unsure about css. Problems I have now are to do with floating both navigation lists. I have used tables and divs, as layouts are just too difficult for me to take on right now, but maybe this is causing problems.

The left navigation does not sit right ie flush to the left of the page. The top navigation does not float to the right flush either. I hesitantly post this question as a previous post seemed to have caused a long thread of disputes.

Here is the HTML
[html] <td valign="top" rowspan="2" width="117">
<div id="navigation">
<li><a href="mosaic.htm">mosaic workshop</a></li>
<li><a href="screen.htm">screen printing</a></li>
<li><a href="craft.htm">creative crafts</a></li>
<li><a href="web.htm">web design</a></li>
<li><a href="gallery.htm">gallery</a></li>
<li><a href="events.htm">events</a></li></ol></div>
<div id="leftcontent">&nbsp;<img src="images/pheonix.jpg"
alt="image of artists work - pheonix" width="110" height="145"
and the css
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. #table             {align: left;
  2.                     width: 750px;
  3.                     height: 700px;
  4.                     margin: 0 auto;}
  6. #navigation        { padding: 0;
  7.                      margin: 1px;
  8.                      text-align: left;
  9.                      width: 180px;
  10.                      height: 160px;
  11.                      color: #6600CC;
  12.                      }
  14. #navigation li     { margin-bottom: 3px; }
  16. #navigation a      { background: #fff;

  22. #navigation a:hover { background: #e60073;
  23.                       text-decoration: none; }
  25. #leftcontent        {align: left;
  26.                      float: left; }
  28. #topnavigation    ( text-align: right;

Please be a little more specific about what it's doing wrong. Also, is the picture what it currently looks like, or what you want it to look like?

Sorry about the other thread that was sort of my fault. That doesn't usually happen, and odds are it won't happen again.....disputes like that are some what rare.

Thanks, Death
