I don't think you can do this in general unless you're willing to
dynamically create the CSS.  Otherwise, you've got to set all the widths
to some max _fixed_ size. IE; all width: 12em or whatever and sometimes
cope with extra white space and maybe cope with overflow: hidden.  (I'd
recommend using "em"s but I haven't had to deal with conversion issues
between Mac's and PC's and I'm not sure if that's completely portable.)
