OK... let's take Tom back out (the poor sap).

<table border="3">

<tr>
<td colspan=2>Ed</td>
<td>Rick</td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>Larry</td>
<td>Curly</td>
<td>Moe</td>
</tr>

</table>
Ed Rick
Larry Curly Moe

Rick gets scared and he leaves. Ed takes over Rick's cell too, and just cause he's that way, he stands right in the middle of the cell.

<table border="3">

<tr>
<td colspan="3" align="center">Ed</td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>Larry</td>
<td>Curly</td>
<td>Moe</td>
</tr>

</table>

All other HTML markup, by the way, can be used in a cell. We'll make Ed bold as an example.

<table border="3">

<tr>
<td colspan="3" align="center"><b>Ed</b></td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>Larry</td>
<td>Curly</td>
<td>Moe</td>
</tr>

</table>

We'll also make him a link to HTMLisEasy.com.

<table border="3">

<tr>
<td colspan="3" align="center"><a href="http://www.htmliseasy.com/"><b>Ed</b></a></td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>Larry</td>
<td>Curly</td>
<td>Moe</td>
</tr>
