Chapter 14. Tables > Setting the Width

Setting the Width

By default, a browser will automatically determine the width of your cells by looking at the elements and text they contain. It will then expand each cell to the edge of its contents or to the edge of the browser window, whichever comes first. With images, that’s pretty clear cut; the edge of the image will be the edge of the cell. Text, however, is stretched out until the first line break, or until the end of the paragraph, which can be very long indeed.
