I want to make a html table with single row, 2 columns.

The columns should fill the page with width in the ratio. 80% : 20%.

In the first column I want to have 3 rows to completely fill the first column.

Can anyone suggest something that works?

Thanks.

Something like this?



<table style="width:100%;">
<tr>
<td style="width:80%;">
<table style="width:100%;">
<tr>
<td>Row 1</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Row 2</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Row 3</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
<td style="width:20%;">Column 2
</td>
</tr>
</table>

Thanks very much.

This works. The problem is that the first three rows from the first column dont fill the width of the column.

Any ideas?

Tables aren't meant for page layout. If you are displaying data, then fine but otherwise you shouldn't use a table.

Aerospace is absolutely right. If your using this table for layout purposes, you should go strictly Div based.
