More Elegant Column Widths in ASP:Table Objects?

P: n/a
Whenever I create tables in HTML, I have to specify the widths of the CELLs within each row. It's incredibly repetative because it seems I have to repeat these seem cell-width values in each row of the table

I'd much rather be able to specify the column widths for the entire table in one spot. Am I doing something stupid? It ther an elegant way to do this using the asp:Table object... or can it even be done in old-fashioned HTML tables and I just don't know how

Thanks

There's the COL tag for HTML tables, but you hardly ever see them used.
May be an IE only thing (I'm too lazy to look up the w3c spec):
