  • HTML tables have a mind of their own at times. Usually its with the columns resizing unless explicitly formatted.

  • Did you set a width for the table and a width for each column? If not, they'll take all the room available to them.

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

  • If you don't set a size the tablet will shrink to the smallest space the table needs in most browsers. Where and how to wrap content if it there isn't enough room for all content in all rows to be in a single line. Which cells to wrap where may well vary. If you want consistency you need to explicitly set the width of the first row of table cells. You do not need to set each and every cell but once per cell is all that is necessary.

  • And if you're using tables for the basic layout of your site, don't. The non-semantic use of tables for layout was deprecated over a decade ago, and makes your content difficult for search engines to crawl and to rank for relevance to search terms, lowering your position in search results. Bad idea, altogether.

    If your tables contain naturally row/column-oriented data, "spreadsheet" type data, or image gallery thumbnails, or product catalog items, that kind of thing, then tables are appropriate. If not, then you should use divs, paragraphs, headings, lists, and other semantic constructs to build your pages.
