Turn on the table's border (border="1") and you will see the reason.

You can avoid this by 1. Using multiple tables instead of one large table,
or 2) not putting the image and text in their own table cells.  Simply align
(float) the image left and let the text wrap around it... then force the
next paragraph to start below the picture by using <br clear="all" />
