Attribute for <TABLE ...>
WIDTH = "width expression"

WIDTH sets the width of the table. The width can be expressed either as an absolute value in pixels, or as a percentage of the screen width. If the width is not given, the browser will use built in routines to determine what width looks best (according to the browser programmer's tastes).

Some examples:

A common value for WIDTH is 100%, which gives the table a nice full-page look.

<TABLE BORDER WIDTH=100%>
<TR><TD>peaches</TD><TD>cherries</TD></TR>
<TR><TD>walnuts</TD><TD>almonds</TD></TR>
</TABLE>

peachescherries
walnutsalmonds

<TABLE BORDER WIDTH=65%>

peachescherries
walnutsalmonds

For tables that are less than 100%, putting the table inside <CENTER ...> often looks better than leaving the table left aligned:

<CENTER>
<TABLE BORDER WIDTH=50%>

</CENTER>

peachescherries
walnutsalmonds
