problem with shifting tables on form

My form is set up so every line of the form is a table. Inside the
table I have two <td> tags. One is a description ie "name" and the
other is either an input box or drop down list etc.

The problem that I am having is that when I use two words like "area
code" or I have two input boxes inside one <td> tag it will not line
up with the the rest of my form if the browser is not maximize. When
you shrik it down you can see it become misaligned.

both netscape and IE have the problem of not lining up when there are
two input boxes inside a <td> tag.

only IE explorer will shift the line if the description has two words
unless I add the space &nbsp; code between the words.

I am just looking to keep the descriptions oriented right (toward the
center).....all the choice and input boxes oriented to the left
(towards the center) and have the whole form stay lined up wether or
not the browser is maximized or not.

It sounds like you want a single <td> element and a corresponding <th>
element, not two <td> elements.

I don't see any difference between a wide window and a narrow window. I do
see that you have a new table for each row - don't do this, just have one
table with lots of rows.

That form looks like it may be exploitable by spammers. Remember, a visitor
can supply any email address, not just the one that's hardcoded in your
form.
