Percentage Widths for table?

Threaded View

 I am working on the following page:

 Near the bottom there is a table with the caption 'slrn Colours'. I
have centred the table and set it at 50% width of the containing div.
What I would like to to is to make the two columns of the table of
equal width by setting the value 50% to each column.

 I cannot see how to do this, although I am sure it must be an easy
matter. Any ideas?

Quoted text here. Click to load it

Just put style="width: 50%" (or width="50%") on the first <td> in each
column. Not on the colspanning <td> but on the one containing "0 black"
and on the one containing "8 gray". You can leave the 50% set on the
whole table of course.

These are the slrn colours I use:
