Defining Table Width (Percent or Pixel)
From Pat XXXXXXXXX at XXXXXXX Design on 14 April '98
a topic which i never thought much of before has been troubling me lately.

should i define a table's width w/ pixel or percent value?

Pixel is more precise and text and graphics will be laid out the same on everyone screen no matter what there settings are.But, it tends to look a little too scrunhed past 800x600. So I'm not sure if its only need to define table's w/ pixels for border bg? ...like CNET or zdnet

Percent is good because the body is set enough from the edges so you get the white space you want. But, the contents moves all over the place depending on how big the user browser is maximized to.
