Need HTML feedback on one of my pages

I need some feedback regarding the code I am using on my Bio page. I want to know if there is a more efficient way for me to use the code? Maybe introduce the easiest way to implement CSS? I really like using code because it allows for greater control over the content.

For example, if I want to change the dimensions of the pictures, I have to do it for each picture in the code. I was wondering if there is a way where I can change the dimensions once so that all of the pictures are updated instead of having to do it for each picture.

Here is the code:

<td><b>The Beginning</b><br>
Ever since I can remember, music has played an integral part of my life.
My mother was a classical pianist and I can remember when I was very young,
hearing her playing Chopin, Beethoven and Brahms to my delight.
Probably my earliest musical memory was when I was still crawling, putting a 12" 78 record
of Doris Day on the turntable. I remember the song well. It was, "I'll Never Stop Loving You".
At this point in time, my keen interest in records along with an endless fascination
of the magic of it all would stay with me for the rest of my life. Over the years
I began to appreciate music in all it's glory. From pop to jazz, ethnic to rock, it all made sense... </td>

<td><b>The Discovery</b><br>
One Christmas when I was very young,
I remember getting a couple of albums from the Beatles.
Help! along with Twist And Shout. After carefully
examining the album covers (yes, we did have real album
covers back then), I carefully placed one of the albums on my
Fleetwood portable record player. There it was again.
The magic of music coming through what I would later learn were speakers.
I used to think that when I heard music on the radio that the artist
was actually performing in the studio. Another early belief was
that musicians could do no wrong. They ruled the world so to speak.
They were "IT". The ultimate in artistic freedom.
When you are a young boy in the process of discovering music
through a little box tucked under a pillow, well, there is nothing
to describe the feeling of how these sounds mysteriously crep
t from this magical little box to my ears each and every night.
Little portable radios were all the rage back then. Adistant relative to the iPod for sure... </td>

<td><b>Radio</b><br>
When I graduated from high school in 1974, I decided to attend
Marionopolis College. Little did I know that my fascination for
radio would take a quantum leap. It was here that I started working
at the newly formed radio station, CMCR, Radio Marionopolis.
Working here doing a weekly radio show that was broadcast locally to the students
gave me an opportunity to discover new music. Bands like Gentle Giant,
Genesis, early German experimental music from the likes of Klaus Shultz,
Tangerine Dream, Nektar along with many other up and coming groups
formed my inner circle of musical exploration. After graduating from
Marionopolis, I attended Concordia University. CRSG-FM was their
radio station. In 1976 I was given a weekly rock radio show. This gig lasted all of four years.
All of my studying took place in the radio station. It was in a sense my second home... </td>

<td><b>University</b><br>
For a few years after graduating from Concordia I had no involvement in radio.
Then, in 1988, after recently moving to Ottawa, I became host of a Jazz radio show that would soon become known as In Transition.
I also had an opportunity to work with Gordon Bennett.
Gordon was part of The Capital City Jazz Band for over thirty years.
He had a deep appreciation for traditional jazz and the musicians that made it all possible. After his passing in 2004,
I decided to extract the best moments from his radio show (At The Jazz Band Ball)
which are featured on this site. You can also hear some of my radio shows as well.
Over the years I would feature interviews I had done along with a plethora of new and established jazz musicians.
To this day the journey continues. It's hard to believe how fast time flies.
Twenty years of radio in Ottawa this year (2008). One of the greatest and most important gigs in my life. No regrets. </td>

I plan on featuring even more musicians, that next "big thing" in the world of jazz, along with expanding my international base of jazz musicians.If

Hello Randy,

Regarding the images, you could set a CSS style or class for them. This means that you would only have to set the height and width one - and you could use it for an unlimited number of images.

Here's the code:

<!---
<style type="text/css">
img.bio {
height:120px;
width:150px;
}
</style>

<h1><center>Bio</center></h1>
<table border="0" cellspacing="10" cellpadding="5" width="800">

Thanks a million Andi!! I new it had something to do with Class but I wasn't quite sure how to do it. So now that I havethe code for CSS in place, this means I can add other CSS atributes to it if need be all I have to do is set up another class? I will be going to the online HTML school to check out the CSS stuff. I will also search on YouTube for easy to understand CSS how to videos.
