Design Questions

J

3 specific questions referring primarily to fixed-width columns within
fixed-width tables:

1. For calculating fixed column widths, I found some math online:

cellpadding * columns * 2 + cellspacing * (columns + 1) + borders *
(columns + 1) =
full table width

I would appreciate any feedback as to whether this is correct/reliable.
2. I have heard that leaving one column with width undefined is good
web design practice. Would someone confirm/refute this claim?

3. What is the best way to specify "rowspan" when you have a column
which continually changes height with updates, and the adjacent column
has a fixed number of rows? I initially thought that "rowspan=0" would

be correct but it appears this isn't universally supported.

Thanks in advance.

That middle URL is incorrect. It should read:
