    E Bulletin woes

    Hi guys,

    Making a newsletter with a table split into 2 columns:
    Code:
    table.bulletin {
     width: 650px;
     border-collapse: collapse;
     font: 0.75em arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    }
    td.nav {
     width: 230px;
    }
    td.content {
     width: 420px;
     padding-left: 10px;
     text-align: justify;
     w\idth:410px;
    }
    The problem is that left col 'nav' is longer than right col 'content' and so 'content' is vertically shifted to be center.

    Is there a quick way to remove vertical align center?

    D.

    <p>
    A groundbreaking initiative from Belfast City Council to make the city centre more vibrant between 5pm and 8pm, has chalked up a series of major awards. After success at the Belfast Business Marketing Excellence Awards and the Association of Town Centre Management Awards, the 'More Time' evening economy campaign has been picked as 'Project of the Year' at the annual William Johnston Memorial Trust Awards. Launched in spring last year, the project has infused the city centre with new life, including later opening hours for shops, cultural activities, special earlybird deals at restaurants and pubs and free early evening entertainment at pubs.

    <p>
    The Cultural Tourism Visitor Management Plan was named 'Best Tourism Partnership Initiative of the Year' at the annual Northern Ireland Tourism Awards.  The Plan is based on a visitor signage strategy to help visitors navigate the city and includes 'Welcome to Northern Ireland' signs at the main airports, ports and train stations, which help to create a good first impression.  Part funded by European PEACE II programme, 90 navigational, orientation and interpretation signs were installed throughout Belfast to play an important part in encouraging visitors to stay longer and explore more areas of the city.  The signage also encourages visitors to visit Belfast Welcome Centre to get information on all of Northern Ireland and to experience more of the region.

    <p>
    Successful Skills Development initiatives in the Queen's Quarter and Cathedral Quarter carried out earlier in the year, were attended by over 80 representatives from the tourism sector including hotels, Tourist Information Centres, tour guides, taxi drivers, venues, bars and restaurants. The aim was to update front of house staff in the industry about what cultural activity is on offer in the Quarters in order to help guide and advise visitors. Workshops informed of the history of the Quarters and places of cultural interest.  This was followed by walking tours and visits to venues, hotels and galleries with a chance to meet cultural organisations.
