Hi, I'm trying to make a table to display a set of 'comments left' by the users on my site. Since css has issues with setting heights/min heights between browsers I went with a table so the cells would fill out the way I want. It works fine, except that there is an extra couple px of padding on the top of the right column.

I isolated the issue and you can see what I mean here:

also, here is the xhtml+css code

HTML Code:
<table style="width: 500px; border: 1px solid black;">
<tr>
	<td style="width: 120px; border: 1px solid black;" rowspan="3">
		<a href="">Name</a>
		<br />
		<a href=""><img src="" height="80" width="80" style="margin-top: 5px; border: 1px solid black;" /></a>
		<br />
		<small>Member since 3/3/3</small>
		<br />
		<br />
	</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td style="height: 25px; border: 1px solid black;">
	post date
	</td>
</tr>
<tr>
	<td style="border: 1px solid black;">
	text goes here
	</td>
</tr>
</table>
can anyone help me get rid of that extra space?
