Different in hotmail

When I sent my newsletter to a hotmail account it makes the table height size larger. In Mail it just looks fine.

This is the html:
  <tr>
    <td height="569"><table width="620" height="560" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <td width="482" height="569" rowspan="8" class="table2" background="images/news2.gif"><table width="482" height="361" border="0" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="0">
                 <tr>
            <td height="20" colspan="2" class="kopnews">NEWS</td>
            </tr>
          <tr>
            <td width="199" height="150" class="imagesnews2"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/youtube.gif'$>" height="100" width="199" border=0 /></td>
            <td width="268" class="tekst"><$description$></td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td width="199" height="150" class="imagesnews2"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/youtube.gif'$>" height="100" width="199" border=0></td>
            <td width="268" class="tekst"><$description$></td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
            <td height="36" colspan="2" class="tekstnews2">
              <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
            <td class="tekst"><$description$></td>
          </tr>
         <tr>
            <td class="tekst"><$description$></td>
          </tr>
         <tr>
            <td class="tekst"><$description$></td>
          </tr>
              </table></td>
          </tr>
          </table></td>
        <td height="181" colspan="2" background="images/news2_righttop2.gif"></td>
        </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="88" height="73" background="images/facebook.gif"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/facebook.gif'$>" height="73" width="88" border=0></td>
        <td width="50" height="388" rowspan="6" background="images/news2_right.gif"></td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="88" height="42" background="images/youtube.gif"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/youtube.gif'$>" height="42" width="88" border=0></td>
        </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="88" height="84" background="images/beatport.gif"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/beatport.gif'$>" height="84" width="88" border=0></td>
        </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="88" height="53" background="images/3voor12.gif"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/3voor12.gif'$>" height="53" width="88" border=0></td>
        </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="88" height="75" background="images/wearee.gif"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/wearee.gif'$>" height="75" width="88" border=0></td>
        </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="88" height="61" background="images/ra.gif"><img src="<$imagesrc link='true' default='images/ra.gif'$>" height="61" width="88" border=0></td>
        </tr>
         <tr>
        <td height="13" colspan="2" background="images/news2_bottom.gif"></td>
        </tr>
    </table></td>

I can figure it out what I'm doing wrong! :(

Instead of using colspans/rowspans use nested tables.

All the <td>'s in a single row should have the same height.
