As I recall, the winhelp compiler freezes the table width. There is noting
you can do but size your tables to something that generally works and hope
for the best.

I can pull out an old book and look, but this is my memory. There were many
interesting limits to the Winhelp compiler and this is one, I think.

Been there, done that. Didn't work. This is the same procedure that Robo
recommends. I don't know why it isn't working for me.
