Now the problem i have is for the content in the middle... i have very little freedom to create the information. Is there a easier way to make it? I tried to merge the cells but then it gave problems inside aligning the lines away from the main table.
Plzz help, i'm having alot of dificulties..

You need to do this with CSS M1kes, it would be much easier, tables are dead.

Check out some tutorials and then have another go at your design.

It would involve a DIV container and a unordered list for the menu with the use of green borders.

Ricky is right and your design would lend itself very nicely to a CSS layout. You even have a floated image and text wrapped round it.

There are tutorials on this site and you can also start here...
