How do I get a "TD" tag to span the entire width of a table if I don't know how many columns will be in the final table?

For instance:

<TABLE>
<TR>
    <TD colspan=0?>This is a title that I would like to span across the top of the next "n" columns"</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
    <TD>FIRST COLUMN</TD>
    <TD>SECOND COLUMN</TD>
    <TD>THIRD COLUMN</TD>
    .... plus up to 50 dynamically added columns....
</TR>
<TR>
    <TD>.... same as above but with different data....
</TR>
</TABLE>

The proper element to use is CAPTION:
