Hi I have the following structure for my <table> tag
6 rows

row1 has 2 columns
row 2 has 2 columns
row 3 has 6 columns
row 4 has 6 columns
row 5 has 5 columns
row 6 has 5 columns

The problem i am having is, the columns are of different width. I want the columns to be aligned in each row. This is not happening.

I used colspan=5 Does not help for row 2 column 2.

Is there a better way to align columns with different widths?

i tried that. I will tell you why it does not work.

row 2 has two input type=text (column1 and column2) each textbox with size is 25
row 4 has 6 textboxes, 1st with size 25, 2nd 3rd 4th with size 2, 5th and 6th with size 7

in the above mentioned case, r2c2 and r2c3 will be faaaaaar apart. how would you solve that?

I put row 2 and row 6 as you mentioned, and looks align up to me.  I misunderstand your question.
 
  <tr>
          <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t1" size="25"></td>
         <td colspan="5"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="25"></td>
   </tr>
<tr>
          <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="25"></td>
         <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="2"></td>
         <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="2"></td>
          <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="2"></td>
         <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="2"></td>
          <td colspan="1"><input type="textbox" name="t2" size="7"></td>
   </tr>
