A stupid CSS / table question

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

How do I set a column's width so that it just covers the contents?
Put it another way, I have 4 columns and I want their widths to be:
all the rest

This is the desired layout
|col1|col2                                             |col3|col4   |

If I replace "min" with 1px and "all the rest" with *, IE will not align
text to right in "min" cols. Firefox seems to work fine.

If I replace "min" with 1* and "all the rest" with *, both browsers will
expand cols 1 and 3:
|                  col1|col2                       |            col3|col4

using XHTML 1.0 strict (IE in quirks mode).
