The following works in both IE4 and Navigator 4:
<table width="50%" border="2">
<td width="50%">Some stuff or other.</td>
<td width="50%">Some other stuff.</td>
Use the width attribute of the TABLE tag to set the overall table width.
Use the width attribute of the TD tag to set the individual column widths.
The example above creates a table with width 50% of the browser window, and
sets each column width to 50% of the table width.

Does anyone know how to set equal column width for a table that applies
in both Netscape and Explorer? I know there are tools within Netscape
and other WSIWYG editors but is there any HTML code that will set this
option across browsers?
