I need some help fixing this table width please

Hi There,
I have a table that fits beautifully in my CMS webpage.
When the client updates this table, I do not want the table to extend beyond 719px.
How can I alter this code below to ensure that no matter what the table will stay at that width.
Ideally I would like the height to remain the same too, but I am thinking this could be impossible?
I tried this:
<table style="max-width:350px;">
but I am not sure I added it correctly in the below code, because when I went to edit the table, the text stretched the table width
?
<table border="1" width="719" height="328"><tbody><tr><td colspan="5"><p> <strong><font face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif">FIXTURES AND RESULTS - <em>Northern Rivers Village Information</em></font></strong></p></td></tr><tr align="center" valign="middle"><td><p><strong><br /> </strong></p></td><td><p><strong> DATE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong> MATCH</strong></p></td><td><p><strong> VENUE</strong></p></td><td><p><strong> RESULT<br /></strong></p></td></tr><tr><td> 1</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 2</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 3</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 4</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 5</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 6</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 7</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 8</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 9</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 10</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 11</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 12</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 13</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 14</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 15</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td> 16</td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr></tbody></table><p>&nbsp;</p>

the code you have should do the trick.  If not give me more details of what is making it grow and I will look.

I'm not HTML guru, so take this with a grain of salt...

As far as I know specifying the width as you've done sets the absolute width of the table in pixels (or percentage if you choose).  Since you specified 719 the table should not grow beyond that width.  

There is a height command available within the <td> element.  <td height="">.  Works the same as width (pixels or percentage).

hi grvulture where do I add that?
Like this?

<table style="max-width:350px !important;" border="1" width="719" height="328">

or
<table style="max-width:350px !important;"> <table border="1" width="719" height="328">
?

first choice would be right.

both choices should NOT let your table grow beyond 350pixels, even if you have a width statement of 719
