If one column is a graphic and the other column is a description and graphics can be various sizes and the amount of text in the description can be varying lengths, then CSS is not aware of sizes of the graphical or text content. For example, tables will auto adjust if most of the graphic widths are 100px but one graphic is 250px wide. They will also adjust if the text is usually 50 characters but one is 700 characters. A table will adjust the columns for the best mix of the graphic and text column sizes and increase row size. You can a simple example at http://www.constructionlifters.com/ShopCL/C_CategoryModel.asp?idCategory=94 vs http://www.constructionlifters.com/ShopCL/C_CategoryModel.asp?idCategory=84 more complex versions (yes, nested tables) on any product detail page. http://www.constructionlifters.com/ShopCL/viewPrd.asp?idProduct=4288&idParen t=84&idCategory=554 vs http://www.constructionlifters.com/ShopCL/viewPrd.asp?idProduct=4499&idParen t=505&idCategory=473 The Advanced Search results page is very dependent on that capability. Resize any of the browser windows and/or increase/decrease the font.
