CSS to get evenly spaced table cells using Repeating Table

This is something that has been on my to do list forever.

I have a page here that displays a grid of images that can be clicked on to view properties.

Its basically done statically, but now really looking to make it a regular product > product_details type set up.

So this is the original:

http://lodges.goodsafariguide.com/botswana/

And this is my still rough dynamic version:

http://lodges.goodsafariguide.com/botswana/indexnew.php

The first issue I've run into is how to space the table cells equally, but align on the left and the right.

So at the moment the repeating code is:

<td class="lodgepreview">

<table width="100%">
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="lodgename"><?php echo($row_rsBotswana['Lodge']); ?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>

</td>

And the CSS is just:

.lodgepreview
{
padding: 0 19px 0 0;
width: 180px;
height:144px;
background-color:#195403;
}
.lodgename
{
border-top:1px solid #FFFFFF;
border-bottom:1px solid #FFFFFF;
padding:0px 0px 0px 0px;
text-align:center;
background-color:#938B8C;
}

So I'm using the 19px right padding to space the cells, but I only need it in columns 1-4, with no padding in column 5.

it's a table so use cellspacing attribute on the table tag:
<table width="100%" cellspacing="10">

Thanks Jason.

That gives me this:

Which isn't quite what I'm after.

This is it with no padding or cellspacing:

So I'm trying to get the table cells that size, with the text spanning their entire width as shown, but evenly spaced under the main banner image without the extra space on the right hand side. So the gap between the columns should be 19px.

that is a limitation to tables, you wont be able to do this using table, you will need to use a standard div structure with a standard repeat region instead of the repeating table.

In the manager relational tables tutorial, there is an example of how to use a repeat region and create a horizontal layout similar to the repeating table behavior:
