    Default Table Size - pixels or percentage

    Hi there,

    I'm fairly new to designing web pages and have a few questions. I will post each separately so not to create confusion. Please keep in mind, as you can tell from my username, I have no clue.

    When you use tables in your web, is it better to set the size using pixels or percentage?

    Pixels, pixels!
    I hate it when websites are incompatible with my stupidly high screen resolution because they are using percentages which screws up a pixel-dependent layout.

    I some times use both, like if i make a side navigation bar i use pixels so it will be set for the contents side i use percentages, that way the nav bar is always the right size, and the contents are stretched to fit the rest of the screen, because like me i have high rez, and some still have 600 x 800 so no matter what size the screen is, it will always look good
