Depending on your browser, you could use "On-Site CSS Markup" in your user settings to change this.

If you use Firefox/Mozilla, try adding

input[value="Download Selected Code"] + br + table td{ vertical-align: top; }
to your user style sheet.

If you use IE (or you don't care if all td's get aligned to the top)*, add

td { vertical-align: top; }
to your user style sheet.

IE doesn't support adjacent sibling selectors. In the few minutes I spent looking at this I didn't see a way for IE to see just the "d/l this" td's without using javascript.

* I think just "d/l code" and "reply-dl/code" will visibly change, but don't quote me on that ;)

    Actually, I have the same annoyance with "reply/select/download" shown in the thread listing to the right of replies to the original post. I think all of these elements should be in the same place (in an absolute sense), regardless of the length of the node text (not in a relative sense). The top is a little easier to find, but the bottom makes it a little more difficult to reply/download without reading something of the post.

    Update: I've tried both in Firefox, and decided on the later, at least for now. (Are there any tds that shouldn't be modified this way?)
