Use Relative Table Widths to Create Expanding-Width Web Pages

Create expanding-width screen sizes by using relative-width HTML tables. In HTML you can specify table widths as either absolute or relative values. Absolute widths are expressed in terms of pixel sizes and are calculated only once by the Web browser. For example, the expression <TABLE WIDTH=60> would create a table exactly 60 pixels wide.

Relative widths are expressed in terms of percentages and are recalculated dynamically, so they expand properly every time the customer resizes a Web browser window. For example, the expression <TABLE WIDTH=80%> would create a table that is exactly 80 percent of the current width of the Web browser window.
