Safe Size Tables

Table grids are very valuable to control the placement of images and text on a webpage. However, there is a drawback. Text in the table cells do not wrap around to the next line at the end of the browser window, but at the edge of the table cell. SO if your table is wider than the browser window, users will have to scroll back and forth to read the text. Secondly, monitors of users have different resolutions and are capable of displaying different widths. So a safe size table grid is a table that is not wider than the lowest quality monitor's width. A safe size table is one that will display fully on any monitor.
