My 1st column in my HTML table is too wide

Here's my code for the first six rows.
<style type="text/css">
table, th, td {
    border: 1px solid black;
	}
</style>
<TABLE width="100%" border="1" valign="TOP">

I attached file screen print showing the 1st 6 rows of a long report.

As you can see the 1st column is too wide.

The table is adjusting to the entire screen. Maybe try making it a smaller percentage like 60%.

TABLE width="60%"

Experiment with this code:

<TH width="20%">
                         <font color="black">
                              <u><DIV align="left">Overnight Batch Processing</DIV></u>
                         </font>
                    </TH>

It's the percentage that you want to adjust. If you want to fix it, can also be points, as in 200px

First of all: Make yourself familiar with HTML, HTML5 and CSS. This will reduce your code drastically. E.g.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <style type="text/css">
            table { width: 100%; }
            table, td { border: 1px solid black; text-align: center; }
            td:first-child { text-align: left; width: 320px; }
            thead { background-color: #cccccc; }
            thead td { text-decoration: underline; }
            tbody tr.crossheading td { background-color: #33e9ff; color: #3336ff; font-size: 20px; text-decoration: underline; }
            tbody td { font-weight: bold; }            
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <table>
            <thead>
                <tr>
                    <td>Overnight Batch Processing</td>
                    <td>SLA/OLA</td>
                    <td>END TIME</td>
                    <td>BUSINESS IMPACT</td>
                    <td>IM</td>
                    <td>REASON</td>
                </tr>
            </thead>
            <tbody>
                <tr class="crossheading">
                    <td colspan="6">Mutual Funds</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                    <td>Mutual Funds EOD Release</td>
                    <td>6:50pm</td>
                    <td><xsl:apply-templates select="MF38035A"/></td>
                    <td><xsl:apply-templates select="MF38035A_BI"/></td>
                    <td><xsl:apply-templates select="MF38035A_IM"/></td>
                    <td><xsl:apply-templates select="MF38035A_RS"/></td>
                </tr>
            </tbody>
        </table>

I like all the solutions, but I picked the easiest one to use at this time.

btw:

- FONT is a deprecated element and should not be used.
- Your usage of DIV in TD is wrong, cause DIV is a block element, but you assign only text. The correct element in this case is SPAN.
