Google Chrome lets a my layout column collapse

Take a look at the three screen shots.  The first two are Firefox and IE, respectively,  the width of the column containing the "Name," "Activity," and "Start and End Dates" is 150 px as it should be.  Now look at the third screen shot.  This is Chrome (v5).  The column of 150 px has collapsed completely.  Should I switch over to CSS for the column width?  Or, does the problem live elsewhere?

Here's the source code.  

<tr>
   <td style="width: 150px;">
      Name<asp:Label ID="lblLaborID" CssClass="asterisk" runat="server" Text="Label" Visible="False">*</asp:Label>
   </td>
   <td style="width: 310px;">
      <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlLaborID" runat="server" CssClass="ddl300" Enabled="False">
      </asp:DropDownList>
   </td>
</tr>

Open in new window


The last images shows the code rendered by Chrome.  (I've hidden the <option> tags that are child to <select>.

The table in isolation displays ok in chrome. Could you post the styles that go along with the table so we can recreate it? Or, if you have a test page we could access that would be even better.
