has a fixed size and will only fit one single size of window. If you
size the table relative to the window the images will only fit the cells
well at one single size of window. This is totally against the grain and
spirit of HTML where you supply the content and the reader determines
his preferred look and layout.
My idea how thumbnail pages ought to be done is this:
It is a bit of a hack. The CSS standard has defined the attribute
"inline-table" for just this purpose but no single browser supports it
so you have to fudge it.
Don't forget to resize the window from very small to very wide and in
between. Firefox lets you do it while reformatting on the fly while you
drag - highly recommended for testing out fluid layouts.
