https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-tables] fixed width distribution ==
**Compat Issues:** Potentially

**Description:**
Chrome and Webkit distribute widths differently when the table-layout 
is fixed. This is understandable to an extent, but we would like that 
of distribution to be consistent where possible.

**Proposed Option:**
Have fixed width distribution follow that of `table-layout`: auto: 
auto is resolved first, then px, then %.

**CSS 2.1 Option:** 
Undefined in CSS 2.1.

**Other options:**
Use a different width distribution for table-layout:fixed, which would
 work like Chrome and Webkit and consider percentages columns prime 
candidate for distribution and not pixel ones like usually.

**Testcases:**

**Browsers Passing Test:** 
Non webkit-based browsers
