Can someone tell me why pictures are not obeying colspan=2 ?

On my forum, when a picture is posted as part of a post it stretches out the post to only fill the first column of the post title (the post subject and time), which then pushes the next column above (the one with the "quote", "edit", "delete", "IP", etc. in it) off the page.

Examples here:

This only happens with the pictures and you can see that the text in the posts is having no effect.

Any ideas what I need to do to correct this?

This is behaving as expected - the photo makes the column that its in expand, making it too wide to fit on the screen. This column also contains the "Today at... Reply | Quote" part, which is supposed to expand to the full width of the column (so that the bar after "Quote" is at the far right, lined up with the right hand edge of the photo).

Does it make no difference that the column the picture is in is meant to be a composite column of the two (hence the colspan=2 question)?

The text runs over between the two columns and doesn't expand the first one. Only the pic does that.

Is there a way to stop it?

Ahhh. I worked round it by creating a new nested table for the post subject and the IP address (etc.) columns.
