I sometimes have to use tables in my posts, and it always causes me trouble to format them properly to fit the available width of my blog. So I decided to post a note about the formatting I use.
This is kind of a repost of this post.
Here you can read about the general usage of tables. Please do so.
If I have to shrink a table width to fit inside the blog width I use this setting in the <table> tag:
<table border="1" cellspacing="0" style="table-layout: fixed; width: 100%;" >
If I have to stretch the table width I simply use this setting in the <table> tag:
<table style="width: 100%;" >
