Working on my redesign, and Netscape 6.1 (Win2K) seems to completely ignore
table and td width declarations in percentages. Is this a known bug? Is
there a workaround? (I've read Jay Aylard's article "Does Netscape 6 Break
Your Table Layouts?" but nothing seemed to match the circs.)

          <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

and later on

          <td bgcolor="#ff6633" width="50%">

The table squishes down to the narrowest width possible. Works fine in IE6,
Opera 5 & 6, Mozilla .9something, and even, wonder of wonders, Netscape
