this question refers to 

1. What does the width attribute on a TD refer to? Is it

- the center border edge width of the cell?
- the inner border edge width of the cell?
- the inner padding edge width of the cell?

Does it include half of the cell spacing, if specified? And if so, how are the corner cases first cell/last cell in a row handled?

2. Does the width attribute on COL/COLGROUP refer to the same measurement as the width attribute on TH/TD elements?

If you could point me to the place in the HTML 4.01 spec where this is defined, that would be greatly appreciated.
