Flexible table width

Hi,
I used a recent hint to change attributes manually in FW since some things cannot be done - like in this case making a table to fill 100% of its parent element width.

So I did and set the table width manually to 100%. It seems to work, but… when viewing the source code, the rows (td) still have their assigned pixel widths and find no way to change this.

I don’t know how the HTML standard is defined for tables using a width set to 100 % while the td width is set to 200 px.

Can I assume as a standard behavior that the overall table width takes precedence over the td width?

Sorry, I found the option to add attributes to table rows and changed their widths accordingly. It was a bit hidden in the inspector.

I think with most things CSS trumps element height and width attributes.

This is an old example, but built in Freeway.
