I have several tables displayed on the following page:

http://www.sonoma.edu/exed/napa-solano/curriculum

I want the width of the table to be set to 80% and I specified that within the HTML code in the page. However, it is being overridden by the CSS in the base.css file which sets the table width to 100%. How can I get the table to display the way I want?

Can you add an attribute "style" to the table element as follows: <table width="80" style="width:80% !important;"> ?
