Tips for formatting 3 to 4 column tables

Looking for good tips on how to properly format (CSS) tables that have three to four columns. I've tried a bunch of things and have found giving the table the following properties seems to work well, but wondering if there is a better way?


table {

border-collapse: collapse;

table-layout: fixed;

width: 100%;



(Each cell in the table is then given a fixed (%) width).

I figured out that you might run better by using ordinary html table formating options.

Additionaly I use some CSS.


This gives totaly clean tables:


<table width="100%" align="center" cellpadding=0px; cellspacing=0px; border=0px id="menu_table">
<td width="10%" valign="top" align="left">



#menu_table {
    border: 0;
    border-collapse: collapse;
