Use a table...

<tr><td colspan=2>Header</td></tr>
<tr><td>spacer gif</td><td>list item # 1</td></tr>
<tr><td>spacer gif</td><td>list item # 2</td></tr>
<tr><td>spacer gif</td><td>list item # 3</td></tr>
<tr><td>spacer gif</td><td>list item # 4</td></tr>
<tr><td>spacer gif</td><td>list item # 5</td></tr>

You can drop the 2 through end space gifs, you really only need one to set 
the width of the first column.
