can I put a blank column in a table?

I want to use a table to display:

X: xxx             Y:yyy
Z: zzz

and I can't figure out how to get some white space between X & Y.  Can this be done?  

thanks - kay

The following table uses the "width" setting to force the table to be 95% of the viewing resolution width regardless of how many columns you have.  This allows for extra white space in each cell.  You can also increase the white space by changing the value of the "cellpadding", which creates an area of space between the contents of each cell and the cell border.  You can cut and paste this code into an empty html doc and experiment with the settings.

<TABLE  width="95%" border="3" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="10">
      <TR>
            <!-- Row 1 Column 1 -->
            <TD >
                        R1C1
            </TD>
            <!-- Row 1 Column 2 -->
            <TD >
                        R1C2
            </TD>
            <!-- Row 1 Column 3 -->
            <TD >
                        R1C3
            </TD>
      </TR>
      <TR>
            <!-- Row 2 Column 1 -->
            <TD >
                        R2C1
            </TD>
            <!-- Row 2 Column 2 -->
            <TD >
                  R2C2
            </TD>
            <!-- Row 2 Column 3 -->
            <TD >
                  R2C3
            </TD>
      </TR>
</TABLE>

HTH,
John

If you want to have a blank column, try this <td>&nbsp;</td>. It will insert a space in the table cell

Thanks deepchanda - I finally wrote that down because I can never remember it!
John, I think your suggestion of width on the table tag will be most useful to me.  I still need to experiment with it, but I like it much better than what I had - Thanks.   k
