Subject:  3.2 tables and the width attribute 

I remember some discussion about the percent symbol
screwing things up in SMGL, but I notice that in 
the HTML 3.2 overview Width="80%" is used.  It makes
sense that the percent symbol is okay within 
quotation marks, but other values for attributes 
can often drop the quotation marks.

IE:
<img height=10 width=20 >
or 
<img height="10" width="20" >

so, is the rule that if you use the percent symbol
in the value of the width attribute of the table
element, you must enclose the value in quotation marks?

IE:
<table Width="100%"> </table>
but not
<table Width=100%> </table>
