    I am printout two large tables that should line up. I mark each td
    statement with the appropriate width so things look pretty and I use a
    cols= statement in my table declaration to help out the browser. I'd live
    to get rid of the width statements in all of the td statements, but its not
    clear to me if this is well supported by all but most recent browsers.

    If I use Colgroup and specify the column widths for all my fields, I will
    send a bunch less data down and simplify things, but I just want to make
    sure that this is a well supported feature.

    Also, the docs that I read show a colgroup statement followed by on or more
    COL statements. There doesn't appear to be any /Colgroup statement
    required. Is this because the colgroup is supposed to appear before any TR
    statements and that closure is implicit?
