    Table to appear as grid, Set widths on TR

    Hi there,

    I have a table like so:

    Code:
    <table border="0" id="ctl00_ProductCatList">
            <tbody >
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="TV, DVD &amp; Audio" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_0"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_0" >TV,
                                DVD &amp; Audio</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Kitchen &amp; Laundry" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_1"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_1" >Kitchen
                                &amp; Laundry</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Sofas &amp; Dining" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_2"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_2" >Sofas
                                &amp; Dining</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Bedroom" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_3"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_3" >Bedroom</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Computing &amp; Consoles" name="ctl00$ProductCatList"
                        id="ctl00_ProductCatList_4" ><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_4"/>Computing &amp; Consoles</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Phones" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_5"/>
                        <label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_5" >Phones</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Bikes" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_6"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_6" >Bikes</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Photography" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_7"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_7" >Photography</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
                <tr >
                    <td >
                        <input type="radio" value="Small Electrical" name="ctl00$ProductCatList" id="ctl00_ProductCatList_8"/><label for="ctl00_ProductCatList_8" >Small
                                Electrical</label>
                    </td>
                </tr>
            </tbody>
        </table>
    Now, I want the items to appear side by side of each other like the following:

    http://anemat.co.uk/desire.jpg

    I have acheive this by add a width on the tr in CSS like so:

    Code:
    table#ctl00_ProductCatList
    {	margin: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	table-layout: fixed;
    	width: 450px;
    }
    
    table#ctl00_ProductCatList tr
    {
    	float: left;
    	width: 185px !important;
    }
    This works in FF, Chrome, IE8 but for some reason in IE7 it does now and it renders it as a list style still.

    I have no access to the table html as its generated.

    Any suggestions or known hacks for IE7 that may work to acheive the jpg look.

    Thanks,

    To do this I would set it up in two columns:
    Code:
    <table>
    	<tr>
    		<td> Link 1 </td>
    		<td> Link 6 </td>
    	</tr>
    	<tr>
    		<td> Link 2 </td>
    		<td> Link 7 </td>
    	</tr>
    	<tr>
    		<td> Link 3 </td>
    		<td> Link 8  </td>
    	</tr>
    	<tr>
    		<td> Link 4 </td>
    		<td> Link 9 </td>
    	</tr>
    	<tr>
    		<td> Link 5 </td>
    		<td> Link 10 </td>
    	</tr>
    </table>
    Or:
    Code:
    <table>
    	<tr>
    		<td>Link 1<br />Link 2<br />Link 3<br />Link 4<br />Link 5</td>
    		<td>Link 6<br />Link 7<br />Link 8<br />Link 9<br />Link 10</td>
    	</tr>
    </table>
    Or go tableless:
    Code:
    <div id='container'>
    	<div id='left'>
    		Link 1
    		Link 2
    		Link 3
    		Link 4
    		Link 5
    	</div>
    	<div id='right'>
    		Link 6
    		Link 7
    		Link 8
    		Link 9
    		Link 10
    	</div>
    	<div id='clear'></div>
    </div>
    
    #container {
    width: 500px;
    }
    #left {
    float: left;
    width: 50&#37;;
    }
    #right {
    float: right;
    width: 50%;
    }
    #clear {
    clear: both;
    }
    Upon more reading you said you can't change the table code. This might work:
    Code:
    table#ctl00_ProductCatList
    {	margin: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	table-layout: fixed;
    	width: 450px;
    }
    
    table#ctl00_ProductCatList tr
    {
    	float: left;
    	width: 185px !important;
            display: inline;
    }
