Outlook (2007) rendering sections as Bold

I have created a series of nested tables and outlook has rendered the text in the first <td> as bold but then renders correctly in subsequent tables, rows and cells. I don't have any text that should be bold in that area and can't quite work out why it is rendering it that way. I tried adding a closed bold tag and the beginning of the <td> but that didn't seem to work.

The code for that partucular area is below:
<tr><!--OUTSIDE TABLE-->
<td>

<table align="center" valign="top" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

<tr><!--MAIN-->
<td rowspan="3" width="71%" valign="top">
<a name="top">

<h3 align="right">Date</h3>
<h1>From the Executive Director</h1>
<br />
<h2><a name="???">Article name</h2>
<p>have you heard the one about....
<p class="link">&#x2003;<a href="weblink???">Read More &#x009B;&#x009B;</a></p>
<p class="link">&#x2003;<a class="top" href="#top">back to top</a> <img src="top-arrow.gif" alt="Back to top" width="8" height="8" /></p>
<br />

<h1>From the National Office</h1>
<br />
<h2><a name="???">Article name</h2>
<p> have you heard the one about....
<p class="link">&#x2003;<a href="weblink???">Read More &#x009B;&#x009B;</a></p>
<p class="link">&#x2003;<a class="top" href="#top">back to top</a> <img src="top-arrow.gif" alt="Back to top" width="8" height="8" /></p>
<br />

</td>

<td rowspan="3" class="space">
<font color="white">spa</font>
<br />
</td>

<td bgcolor="#7bb1dd" cellpadding="10">
<table border="0" bgcolor="#7bb1dd" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0">
<tr><td>

<table width="100%" border="0" bgcolor="#ffffff" cellspacing="0">
<tr><td>
<h4>In this Issue:</h4>
<h5>From the Executive Director</h5>
<ul class="ToC" type="square">
<li class="ToC"><a href="#???">Editorial</a></li>
<br>
</ul>

It is the section titled MAIN that is rendering in bold when it shouldn't be. I have checked the css and the rest of the html and there are no <b> tags that I can see.

Is anyone else having this type of problem or have any idea why it might be occurring?

Thanks in advance.

You're using <a name="top"> and <a name="???"> but you don't close them somewhere with </a>

Thank you for picking that up, unfortunately it didn't effect the bolded sections.
