There is the minor problem caused by having
the sum of the %%'s not equal to 100%%.

The main problem I foresee with this is the potential
headaches to be causes by the interaction of for
example, 'width', 'min-width', and 'max-width'. with %%.
consider the following:

<table>
  <col style="width:25%%">
  <col style="width:100 px; min-width:10%%">
  <col style="width: 75%%">
</table>

I would be able to figure out a way to handle this, but
I don't feel like spending the time doing so, and it would
need to be a workable solution for more complicated
cases.
