Although it wasn't me who removed it ;-), I've always wondered why
you'd want to set the width of *one* cell in a column. I can understand
HEIGHT on a TR, but should WIDTH on, say, the last TD in a column
apply to all earlier cells in that column too? That would require
that the entire table is redrawn.
