Is it possible to set the width of a col of a table?

For example I currently have:-
<style>
     .col1 { width: 20px; }
     .col2 { width: 30px; }
     .col3 { width: 40px; }
     .col4 { width: 50px; }
</style>

<table>
     <tr>
          <td class="col1">1</td>
          <td class="col2">1</td>
          <td class="col3">1</td>
          <td class="col4">1</td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
          <td class="col1">2</td>
          <td class="col2">2</td>
          <td class="col3">2</td>
          <td class="col4">2</td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
          <td class="col1">3</td>
          <td class="col2">3</td>
          <td class="col3">3</td>
          <td class="col4">3</td>
     </tr>
</table>

Open in new window


Currently it just seems to ignore the CSS width

I know I can set the TD width as below, but would prefer to set it in CSS:-
<td width="40px">3</td>

Open in new window

The code works fine - what makes you think it is ignoring your css?

But tables will mess up your css if it needs to arrange cells to better fit the content.

All those TD's have a width set to 50px exactly as it is set in the CSS
