At the page below you can see the cell text in the 5th column butts up with the text in the 6th column even though I have TD right padding set to 5px;

It doesn't look that way in Chrome.  Which browser are you using?

Your problem is:

.ThumbTable td th { padding:5px,5px,0,0;
                                 text-align:left;
                         vertical-align: text-top;
                         vertical-align:top;
                         width:80px;
                         overflow: hidden;
                         }

1. Your text is in a "td" not "td th"
2. There is no comma between values of padding command

It should look like this:
.ThumbTable td th { padding:5px 5px 0 0;
                                 text-align:left;
				 vertical-align: text-top;
				 vertical-align:top;
				 width:80px;
				 overflow: hidden;
				 }

vuhanguyen has it almost right. He forgot to correct the "td th" issue that he mentions. If you want the css to be valid for both td and th, it should be:
.ThumbTable td, .ThumbTable th { padding:5px 5px 0 0;
                                 text-align:left;
				 vertical-align: text-top;
				 vertical-align:top;
				 width:80px;
				 overflow: hidden;
				 }

".ThumbTable td th" would only apply to a <th> tag that is a descendant of a <td> tag which is a descendant of an element with a class name of "ThumbTable." This would only work if you have nested tables and then only to the <th> tags in the nested table.
