Controlling Width of Tables in Articles

Is there a way to override whatever it is that forces tables to be full width using this template?

I have put a table in an article and no matter how I modify the HTML to control the width of the table, it shows up at full width. When I have a picture in the article, this means I end up with a large empty space in the display so the table can be shown full width under the image.

I tried temporarily changing the template used in that menu area to the purity one and the table displayed as desired. So clearly I am dealing with an override of some sort in the CSS or something else, but my attempts to find it failed.

If it makes a difference, my site is set up for fluid width. You can see it at <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="/"></a><!-- w --> and the table under &quot;Reb&quot; -&gt; &quot;Rebgrimer&quot; in the Danish version. Not sure how quickly I will have the US translation completed.

I'd really hate to have to change templates just because of this, but my own attempts at finding a workaround have failed. I tried setting pixel widths on tds and I tried a % width overall on the table. The only difference I could make was on the comparative widths of the columns, not the overall width.

If it makes a difference, I am displaying the site on Firefox on Windows, but since I can change the result by swapping the template, I am pretty sure it isn't a browser issue.

sorry to have so many questions alreayd. But in any case, thanks again for the great template.

    Try adding to the bottom of your template.css file:

    [code:ixmtbn2s]&#46;contentpaneopen &#46;table {
