[thelist] Off the Wall (and Page) Tables

I hope this works without screwing up anyone using HTML e-mail.  Here's the
code (hopefully within a comment tag so it doesn't show the actual table) of
what I'm dealing with.  Any suggestions on how to get three columns with the
third (right most) column having pictures of no larger than 239x189 pixels
would be appreciated.  The idea is that the table(s) would look okay in any
resolution.  Most of my users would be viewing in IE 3 thru 5.01, in
Windows.  I think the thing that screwed things up was manually resizing the
tables in Dreamweaver 2 WYSIWYG mode.

        <TABLE width="75%" border="0">
						<TD width="13%"
height="182"><B>Kiddush Cup</B>
						<TD width="54%"
height="182">A cup used during a Jewish service to 
              hold wine.
						<TD width="33%"
height="182"><IMG src="kidcup.jpg" width="75" height="145" alt="Kiddush

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??
