Changing the size of a table can be problematic in many scenarios. If the size is reduced, there is a risk of completely destroying viewability of every cell in the table (as there may not be enough space to see a significant section of any cell, if all cells are simultaneously decreased in size). What is needed is a mechanism that will dynamicly create and destroy entire tables, or portions thereof, to accomodate a new available size situation without impacting the size of the cells themselves.
