wut is wrong with this code

echo"<table width=100% border=2 cellpadding=1 cellspacing=1>";
echo "<tr><td width=13% valign=top>";
echo"<table width=100% border=2 cellpadding=1 cellspacing=1>";
echo "<tr><img src=\"$image\" width=48 height=60></td></tr>";
//echo "</table>";
echo "<td width=87% valign=top>";
echo "<table width=100% border=2>";
echo "<tr><width=100% valign=top><font face=verdana size=1><b><i>$title</i></b></font>";
echo "<tr><width=100%><font face=verdana size=1>$desc</font></td></tr>";
echo "</table>";
echo "</table><br>";

I can't seems to get the text right beside my picture, and as the text is longer, it suppose to automatically echo the excess text below the picture! *sigh*
