I'm trying to build a horizontal menu using a table:

<% if Menu(2) %>
<table class="mainmenu">
<% control Menu(2) %>
<td width="???"><a href="$Link">$MenuTitle</a></td>
<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

However, I am unable to figure out how to determine the width for every column (<td width="???">), if I wanted to have the same width for every menu entry (without knowing the total number of menu entries...)

Can anyone give me a hint on this?

Well, you shouldn't use tables for menus actually...

Why don't you use a ul or ol and float the li's or make them inline, that would be a more modern solution.

I agree with dio5, tables for the navigation! *shudder*. Using a List is a much more semantic way of doing that.
