You can pass a colWidths parameter (a list of widths which must be the
same length as the number of columns) when you create the table if you
want fix the columns widths for each table. I'm not sure it's possible
to specify a fixed total width, but with dynamically assigned widths of
the individual columns, though someone may know different.
