In your <td> on both sides of your image...add &nbsp; inside each <td>

your code should look like this:

<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td><img blah blah></TD>
<td>&nbsp;</td>

I understand that the &nbsp; html code character is just a space. Inserting one (1) makes very little difference. Inserting several increases the width of the corresponding column, but the center column still remains larger than the 700 pixel width graphic. What does work, however, is to set the table size to an absolute pixel value such as width="450" and placing around 30 &nbsp; characters in each of the first and third columns.
This is not what I'm after though. I want to be able to set the table in percent of screen.
