Here i  have marked two circles one in red and one in blue.
The circle in red has the table shrink problem. The table should shrink but its not doing that.
Next when it is in Blue circle, it has to increase a bit so that it matches width of above Brown pallete as shown in picture.
Both are Width problems but can any one help why its not decreasing in first case and why its not increasing in second Blue color circle case?
Thanks,G.

Solution for first (red circle) problem: eliminate the inner table (with the two lower rows) and add the rows to the outer table with the first row. This is best coding standard. If you insist on keeping this structure you need to give these attributes to the inner table: cellPadding="0" CellSpacing="0" width="100%"

Solution for second (blue circle) problem: Change the table width from 802 to 100%

Good Luck.

Just a thought ... Why are you using tables for layout anyway?

There was a problem in Form tag overlapping with TD that caused all the layout to go cross the acceptable width. But your solution also seemed to be working.

Thanks for help anyway.
