ASP.NET Repeater Control - Can't  get columns to align when a cell is empty

When the data is displayed in my repeater control, the columns aren't perfectly aligned when there is no value in one of the cells. For the table layout, I've used pixels and percentages for the columns and nothing is working. Here's the table layout....

<asp:Repeater id="parentrepeater" runat="server">
<itemtemplate>
<TABLE style="FONT-SIZE: 8pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Microsoft Sans Serif'" width="750" border="1">
<tr><td width="8%" valign="top" align="left"><%# DataBinder.Eval (Container.DataItem, "projectid" ) %></td>
<td width="15%" valign="top" align="left"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "NewName") %></td>
<td width="15%" valign="top" align="left"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "prjleadfnm") %>&nbsp;<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "prjleadlnm") %></td>
<td width="15%" valign="top" align="left"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "busleadfnm") %>&nbsp;<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "busleadlnm") %></td>
<td width="5%" valign="top" align="center"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "priority") %></td>
<td width="15%" valign="top" align="left"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "corpinitnbr") %>&nbsp;<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "corpinitnm") %></td>
<td width="10%" valign="top" align="left">
</table>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>

Any suggestions for me?

Thanks!

You are making the full table in the itemtemplate.  Keep in mind that this is repeated x number of times, so in the end, you have x number of tables.  Since they are all separate, it would be very hard to align everythign perfectly, unless you use pixels (I wouldn't go there)

What you can do is use a DataList control, rather than a repeater.  It is a step up, but everything gets repeated in ONE table.  That should fix your problem.
