Under which context or circumstances is it possible to set the width of a
column group element? I am looking for a test which would demonstrate
this, how it works, the logic of distributing width or calculating width
of sub-table elements.

It now seems certain to me that such table would not be resorting to table
layout fixed algorithm. But then, with table layout auto algorithm, I can
not figure this out either.

Here's the test I've been working on:


I believe there is a flaw in CSS 2.1 spec, otherwise setting width to an
table-column-group is just not working or reliable.
