</th>
<th colspan="4" class="rightcolumn">
Sheathing Thickness
</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<th class="rightcolumn">3/8"</th>
<th class="rightcolumn">1/2"</th>
<th class="rightcolumn">5/8"</th>
<th class="rightcolumn">3/4"</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="leftcolumn">
<span style="padding-left:5px">
3-Tab comp shingles (Bare sheathing)</span></td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1"</td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1"</td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1"</td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1"</td>
</tr>

<td class="leftcolumn">
<span style="padding-left:5px">
Dimensional comp shingles (Bare sheathing)
</span>
</td>

<td class="rightcolumn">1"</td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1-1/4"</td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1-1/4"</td>
<td class="rightcolumn">1-1/4"</td>

Open in new window


Now Your CSS:
	    
	 .comptable .rightcolumn{
	 width: 45px;
	 text-align: center !important;
	  }  
	  
	 .comptable tr th{
	 width: 345px;
	 text-align:center;
	 margin-left:40px;
	  } 	
	
	.comptable {
	width:480px; 
    margin:auto;
    font-size:11px;
    border:1px solid #0066ff; /* ~dark blue */
     border-collapse:collapse;	
	}	

	.comptable .firstrow td {
	 border-right: 1px solid #CCC;/*darker gray */
      border-left: 1px solid #CCC;
      border-bottom: 1px solid #CCC;
	  }
		  
	 .comptable .bluerow td{
	  background-color:#0066ff; /*dark blue */ 
	  }
