To set the table column width constant regardless of the amount of text in its cells with CSS, we set the width of the col element.

For instance, we write

<table>
  <colgroup>
    <col style="width: 40%" />
    <col style="width: 30%" />
    <col style="width: 30%" />
  </colgroup>
  <tbody>
    ...
  </tbody>
</table>

to set the col element to have width 40% and 30%.

Then the cells in each column will follow the width if the col element is in the same position as the td in the row.
