fixed table size

Hi,

I am trying to create a table with a fixed size to use it in a mobi file.

e.g.:

Code:
<table border="0">
  <tr>
    <td width="190">FIRST</td>
    <td width="270">SECOND</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>FIRST</td>  
    <td>SECOND</td>
  </tr> 
</table>
for the FIRST td its working, but the SECOND is not working correct. It always end with the text. Any Ideas why this is not working?

regards

JiYu

Tables are barely supported in mobi's, and very limited in their functionality. For displaying small tables (simply displaying a table of data) it will work, but using them for html layout purposes will almost always result in disappointment.

Yeah noticed that already and minimized it (or dont know how to create two "rows" next to each other without table).

I am just wondering because this basic table should be supported according to this -> http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/articl...TagRef_OEB.htm

See if you have any better results with:
Code:
<table width="460" border="0">
  <tr>
    <td width="190">FIRST</td>
    <td>SECOND</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>FIRST</td>  
    <td>SECOND</td>
  </tr> 
</table>
