How to Increase the Space Between the Columns but not the Rows in a HTML Table

I have created the following table which holds a series of anchors that link to topics within the page:

<table border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2" align="center">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td><a style="font-size: xx-small;" href="http://www.saiprograms.com/john-cabot-university-syllabi-new#arthist">Art History and Studio Art</a></td>
<td><a style="font-size: xx-small;" href="http://www.saiprograms.com/john-cabot-university-syllabi-new#econsocsci">Economics and Social Sciences</a></td>
<td><a style="font-size: xx-small;" href="http://www.saiprograms.com/john-cabot-university-syllabi-new#mathsci">Mathematics</a></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

I would like to have more space between the columns, but not the rows. However, if I try to increase the cell spacing, the space between the rows also increase.

How can I just increase the column width only?

Hi geeta_m9, you could try adding padding to the td. Here's a link to illustrate that idea.
