Do you mean that the two side columns might be different widths, so you can't do it simply by centering the entire table?
I'm actually not concerned about the widths of the two side columns
But you need to be concerned about them, because if they are different, then the middle cell will be off center. That's why one of my ideas was making a table with fixed layout so the side cells are the same width.
That's assuming the container itself is centered (is it the whole page?)
I assume you've dealt with the rock-bottom basics like giving each cell the same left and right padding and border, if any.
What you need to look at is those two side cells or columns. What's their content? Is it about the same amount of material in each? Text or something else?
This is all assuming it's a bona fide table -- that is, there's a direct relationship among the items in each row * -- and not just a layout shortcut.
