Hello,

Just wondering how WordPress determines how wide to make a column in a table? If you set a table for 100% width, how does it determine the % breakdowns of each column width?

Cheers

It doesn't. Tables conform to HTML rules and CSS declarations, not anything in WordPress specifically.

If there are no CSS declarations that affect the table tag, the columns will auto size based on the length of cell contents.  If the contents in a two column table are long enough to word wrap, each column will assume 50% width.
