IE3.0 <TABLE WIDTH> enigma

Hello,

I'd like to know if there's a way to coerce IE3.0 into interpreting <TABLE WIDTH="78%> as 78% of the entire width of the document and not 78% of the width of the document MINUS any element placed to the left of this table. IE3.0's tables are therefore more narrow than later versions. This leaves unsightly wide margins on each side of this table. I've tried palying around with the width of the cells, but as soon as you exceed the total of 78%, the table will fly out of the screen which enables the horizontal scroll bar, which is just as unsightly.

I know NN ignores table inherited styles; couldn't there be a work-around involving CSS (margin e.g.) which could do the trick?

Thanks for your help,

John

If you are putting something to the left of the table, then the best way to get around it would probably be to make another table around the table and the element.  It would be more predictable I think.  Make the wrapping table's width 100%, and then you'll need to modify the width of the inner table since it's width will be xx% of the space it is alloted from the browser.

Also using pixels instead percent may help you if you're looking for a specific size (and not one that can be expanded ans shrunk when the window changes size).

Best of luck!
