This thread is the follow up of our discussion started on twitter (https://twitter.com/TablePress/status/380429998533775361)
I am tablepress-user for less than a week and I tried some settings for the custom css to understand how they would work.
At the moment I want to have the columns of the table as small as possible, but as big as necessary to have each row in only one line without a word wrap.
I copied a Table twice and tried different settings.
For the first table i didn't use any custom css.
For the second table I tried to set the fontsize, padding an text-align for the whole table, and a width for the third column.
For the third table I tried to set additionally all (not only one) column width.
You can see all tables in one blogpost: http://www.wirarbeitenmitdemnachwuchs.at/2013/09/18/test/
And now, I do not understand how the custom css works. For example: it seems that the third column looks have nearly the same width although there should be a difference (200px vs. 800px)
I tried it with different OS (Win7, Ubuntu 12.04, Android) and different browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox all Win7, Chromium, FF - Ubuntu, Dolphin, Chrome, stock browser - Android) and it looks everywhere nearly the same.
I would be nice if you could give me a hint.
P.S.: Just for completeness: text-align seems to work (although they are not really centered or left (as we discussed on twitter).
