var objTable = document.getElementById('name');
var firstCol = objTable.rows[0];
var objCells = firstCol.cells;
for(i=0; i<objCells.length; i++){
    objCells[i].width = 25;
}

Now, this is DOM 3 specific, but there are some IE 5.5 alterations that can be applied. Unfortunately NN4.7 or less is unable to reference a table as an object, so there's no hope for it. NN6 uses DOM 3, so the above code will work.

I'm off home now, but sure someone could provide an IE 5.5 equivalent?

Thanks,
I am currently using IE6.0 and Netscape 6.2 so it should work.  I'll give it a try.
