using table in menu item causes I-beam / not clickable hand

I am trying to simple insert an arrow on menu items that have sub menus and when I use a table with two cells, left one for my text, right one for the arrow image, it makes it nearly impossible to select the menu text from the drop down menu. I notice that the cursor changes from a hand/finger clickable type icon to an I-beam cursor on the menu items that are in a table (as opposed to the menu items that don't have submenus and are just text). How do I get around this?

I have the following (menu itmes are 175 pts and thus I set the width of table so I could right align the arrow image):

"<table width="175" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tr><td>Operations</td><td><div align="right"><img src="http://ipersnet/images/arrow3.gif" width="7" height="7" border="0"></div></td></tr></table>"

Hmmmm, while I don't like it..... using a clearpixel spacer gif and adjusting the width using html and doing this w/o a table sorta works.

With pixel adjustments can get it pseudo lined up, but I would still prefer a better alignment. :-(

"Operations<img src="http://ipersnet/images/clearpixel.gif" width="114" height="1" border="0"><img src="http://ipersnet/images/arrow3.gif" width="7" height="7" border="0">
