    I was away last week, so I'm more than a bit late on this post. Since
you seem to already have a workable answer, consider my post just a bit of
superfluous edification... :)
    CSS does have a way to enforce the widths of table cells, using the CSS
2 property "table-layout" with a value of "fixed", e.g.:

<style type="text/css">
  table {
    table-layout: fixed ;
  #td1 {
    width: 298px ;


      <td id="td1">blah</td>
      <td>Link stuff here</td>
