The width of a table cell is deprecated in html5, you should define in
a column insidea  column group as follow:

  html table:
      [html tableColumnGroup:
          [html tableColumn width: 300.
          html tableColumn width: 100].
      html tableBody:
          [html tableRow:
              [html tableData: [html text: 'Large content'].
              html tableData: [html text: 'Small']]]].

The alternative, and suggested option is to use CSS to define the
width of the data. You could do it this way:

  html table:
      [html tableBody:
          [html tableRow:
              [(html tableData)
                style: 'width: 300px';
                with: [html text: 'Large content'].
              (html tableData)
                style: 'width: 100px';
                with: [html text: 'Small']]]]

Or could combine both and define the width by CSS in the tableColumn.
