I want to ensure one column in a table is always the same number of pixels
wide no matter what the screen resolution is set to on the visitors PC - the
other two columns can wrap away top their hearts content.

How do I do this please? The code below doesn't do it.

<table border="1" width="100%">
    <td width="180" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="*" valign="top">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="*" valign="top">&nbsp</td>
