Well, one way would be to put the tables into div's with the float:left attribute. That way the tables will drop to the next level when they run out of room...


<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
  <tr>
    <td width="100%">
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>

If you mean how to "leave" a space between two div's, like this:

    <div style="float:left; width:100px; margin-right:10px;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>
    <div style="float:left; width:100px; margin-right:10px;">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100">
      <tr>
        <td width="100%">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </div>

So, each div will have a 10 pixel margin on the right. Depending on how you want it spaced, you have a number of options:

Margin's all around:
<div style="float:left; width:100px; margin:10px;">

Only on both sides:
<div style="float:left; width:100px; margin-left:10px; margin-right:10px;">

Just on the top:
<div style="float:left; width:100px; margin-top:10px;">

etc...

Let me know if that helps you.
