Is there a way to have a table that has 10 columns and the last row only has 4?
I'm trying to center the 4 buttons at the end of the table.
For eample:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|col1         |col2       |col3     |col4     |col5    |col6    |col7    |col8    |col9    |col10   |
|                                                                                                                                         | 
|               |button1|                |button2|             |button3|             |button4|           |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

It would be easy if all the columns were the same size, but they are not.

Use in each cell of the last row
colspan=""

Though 4 will not go into 10 so you would end with something like 2,2,3,3

Use CSS to style div elements.  Tables made sense in 1996 before we had good browser support for CSS.

Ray may or may not be right.  If the table is presenting tabular data then a table is the correct structure.  However if you anre managing layout with a table then you are just creating maintenance problems for yourself. If it is a form, then rather than using styled divs you should use styled fieldsets for layout management to be semantically correct.

In any case, there is no reason to have the buttons as the final row of the table.  Put them in a container element outside the table and then you can position them any way you want using CSS.

I awoke in the middle of the night.  "GOT IT!!!"  Just set a different <DIV> in the CSS.
