htat's because the delete button is in the wrong place in your code.

if you put an HTML element between the <table> and </table> tags, but don't
enclose it in at least <tr> and <td> tags (pretty loose about closing them,
but of course you should always close your tags!) then the browser will
display that element above the table - since it doesn't really know where
you want it placed.

long story short, replace the last little section of your code with

echo "<tr>\n<td colspan=\"2\" align=\"center\"><input type=\"submit\"

and PS. i don't know if you are doing it by mistake or intentionally, but
you may have noticed that form elements cause a certain amount of space to
be taken up because the browser decides to render them as a <br> or
something for some reason. if you put the <form> and </form> elements
BETWEEN a <tr> and a <td> or a <table> and a <tr> or something (i.e. not
properly located in a <td></td> pair) then this formatting is not displayed
for some reason - go figure.
