hi l

yeah, align=right for tables is intended to flow stuff around it, just like

blockquote is yucky, but it does work, although the indentation isn't
anywhere near the 20% you seem to want, and it also indents on the right
hand side, not sure if this is a necessary part of your design

here are two more ideas

put the 80% table inside a right-aligned div --

  <div align=right>
  <table width=80% border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2>
   <td>Some stuff two!</td>

or use a nested table inside a width=100% table --

  <table width=100% border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
  <tr><td width=20%></td>
  <td width=80%><table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2>
   <td>Some stuff two!</td>

notice you wouldn't need to nest a table if you didn't need the border
