You can also use percentages after the TD tag <TD WIDTH=50%>. I know my users
use a variety of screen resolutions, so if I use absolute widths, someone isn't
being well served. I also have my Windows calculator where it can be easily
accessed for table width calculations. You can't use fractions,
unfortunately. I usually add the extra percentage points into the last column
if I'm not using borders. No one will ever know...
