    Not sure if this with the 2010 theme only, I created a table with several rows and 2 columns:
    1st column is the images and 2 column is text, for some reason the images and text don’t align.
    I tried to set the cell height to a predefined value and it’s still same issue.
    There’s so much blanc space before the text starts and I desperately need help as I use a lot of tables.
    Here’s 2 examples:
    http://lustrass.com/2011/01/01/macaroons-in-minneapolis
    Celebrities without Stylists

    The blog I need help with is lustrass.com.

    Once you have uploaded the images into the table you can click the image and then use the icons in the Visual editor > See here http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/image-alignment/

    Hi monastyling

    I thing it would better for you to use <div> and use some CSS in them….

    Only people with the paid CSS upgrade can use CSS editing. And editing the CSS would mean the changes apply to every single post.

    @monastyling: That’s because of a quirk in the CSS of the theme. To override it you need to write all your opening td tags this way:
    <td style="vertical-align:top;">
    (By the way, in your first example you’re missing a closing and an opening td tag after the first image code.)

    Simpler solution, with no table at all:

    IMAGE1 CODE - TEXT1
    <br style="clear:both;" />
    IMAGE2 CODE - TEXT2
    <br style="clear:both;" />
    etc.

    In this case the images need to be left aligned.
