I'm always amazed that I aced through a year of quantum field theory but CSS
continually baffles me to no end.

If I have some html tables, and set the height and width CSS property for
each td element, is it guaranteed that each cell in each table will be the
exact same height and width under all circumstances?

If not, is there some way of saying "Look here, browser.  As Zeus is my
witness, you will make this cell 3em by 2em no matter what!"

I would give the td sections an id to separate them from the other td tags such as

     <td id="special">bar</td>

then in you css you would have
table {height: 1px; width: 2px;}
#special {height: 3em; width: 2em;}

Hope that helps,
