[thelist] Off the Wall (and Page) Tables

The 75% actually refers to the percentage in width of the parent
element containing the table, not the percentage of the screen.  You
must adjust your widths thusly.

Okay, now I'm confused.  As if you're surprised.  I am working on the 
table page from hell.  Lots of different tables, each with three
columns and a photo in the third column.  I thought I had them aligned,
visually, but noticed that at higher resolutions there's too much white
space on the right.  Now I *thought* that if I set each table to 75%
pixels wide, left aligned, it would fit into the screen (isn't that
what 75% means?? 75% of the screen??) no matter what resolution it's
at.  But at the lower resolutions, the right column is wayyyyyyyy out
there.  If I set it to 50%, centered, it's set WAYYYYYYYYY to the right
(too much white space on theleft side of the page).  Is there something
wrong with my system, my thinking, or both??
