How about 'height' on 'TR' though?  You should be able to set it by row
and not need to do it on each cell...

Of course, I sent a few other requests that night and it seems like more than
half of the emails I sent to the list that night never made it, so I'll
redo them.

A simple one - Why is 'width' on TH/TD set as %pixels and not %Lentgh when
both NS and MSIE appear to support table cell widths as both pixels and
percentages of the table?  In fact, MS Frontpage inserts percentages by
default!

I would LOVE to see percentags supported.  Just yesterday I had a table that
would look a lot better if I could force 4 equal columns - 25%.  I CAN do it
today of course, but it won't validate then.  And it just isn't worth all
the complexity of RFC 1942 since it is a small table.

Can we get that changed, since it does appear to be current use anyway?
