This should be an easy one. When there's a LOT of text to display, the column widths expand out horizontally and the user must scroll way across the screen.  Any suggestions?
<table border="1" width="100%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0">
	<tr>
		<td width = "20%"><b>Field1</b></td>
		<td width = "20%"><b>Field2</b></td>
		<td width = "20%"><b>Field3</b></td>
		<td width = "30%"><b>Field4</b></td>
		<td width = "10%"><b>Field5</b></td>		
	</tr>

It should be OK - unless your problem is that each value is not wrappable (e.g. very long words.. ?)
 e.g. This is a problem because fields 3 and 5 can't be wrapped.  Field 4, though long, wraps OK.
 

<table border="1" width="100%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0">
 <tr>
  <td width = "20%"><b>Field1</b></td>
  <td width = "20%"><b>Field2</b></td>
  <td width = "20%"><b>Field3Field3Field3Field3Field3Field3Field3Field3Field3Field3</b></td>
  <td width = "30%"><b>FiField4Field4Field4Field4Fi eld4Field4Field4Fie ld4Field4Field4Field4Field4eld4</b></td>
  <td width = "10%"><b>Field5Field5Field5Field5</b></td>
 </tr>
</table>
