What's the width of you table itself - does it have enough space or is it being squeezed by constraints ? In my experience tables have a mind of their own when it comes to width.
to your CSS, does that change this behavior ?
(might do a lot of other things too: it removes a lot of the fluff that browsers add on their own)
To be honest: I gave up on abusing tables for layout when I learned CSS, as I discovered both of them together make it far more difficult than just CSS alone.
