Hi, i have 3 td columns. When I placed an image in the 1st , the 2nd and 3rd td dropped down. Can you tell me how to fix it?
thanks. I want all 3 columns' items to vertically align at top of each tab cell.

BTW I'm using html5 and CSS3.

In HTML file scroll down to - 3 columns start here - That is the section I'm talking about.

And in the CSS file scroll down to /****** HOME PAGE ONLY *****/ That section contains the coding.

BELOW IS ENTIRE CODING:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
 
  <title>FFS HOME PAGE</title>

Hi. Try not to use 'table'

Hi. Try not to use 'table' because you heva no cell data.
Try this structure

html:
 
<article class="home">
	<div class="left">
		<img ... />
	</div>
	<div class="middle">
		<h1>...</h1>
		<p>...</p>
	</div>
	<div class="right">
		<h1>...</h1>
		<p>...</p>
		<h1>...</h1>
		<p>...</p>
	</div>
	<div class="bottom">
		<p>...</p>
		<p>...</p>
		<iframe ...></iframe>
	</div>
</article>
 
CSS:
 
.left, .middle, .right {
	float: left;
	width: 33%;
}
.bottom {
	float: left;
	width: 100%;
}
