    I would like to use this for presenting the tons of data I will be putting
    up.
    With the added information I need to present, how do I get the seperation
    lines to extend all the way across the field?
    I would also like the text in each data cell that actually scrolls to be
    left justified rather than right justified.

    If you think I'm hand coding every entery, NOT!
    For that I will be writing a program in Liberty Basic that will generate the
    needed table coding.

    I fianlly have over 1,119,000 records sorted by state and city ready to be
    formatted.

    Found the answer to left justifying the inner table.

    Put empty <td>s to make sure each <tr> contains the same number of <td>s
    (i.e. if there are no "Power units" or "Drivers" for a row, put the
    <td></td><td></td> at the end of the row anyway). Then set empty-cells:
    show on the table.

    I don't understand.

    The table cells don't scroll-- you've got nothing there with overflow:
    scroll set on it.
