Here is what the table code looks like:

    <table width="200" height="200" border="1">
    <tr>
    <td colspan="4">cell 1</td>
    <td rowspan="2">cell 2</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>cell 3</td>
    <td rowspan="2">cell 4</td>
    <td>cell 5</td>
    <td>cell 6</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>cell 7</td>
    <td colspan="3">cell 8</td>
    </tr>
    </table>


    and here is the table:

    cell 1 - spans 4 columns cell 2 - spans 2 rows
    cell 3 cell 4 - spans 2 rows cell 5 cell 6
    cell 7 cell 8 - spans 3 columns
