I'd like to determine the width of two table cells by using an alert(). What would the syntax be?

alert(cellname.width);?

Okay - I've determined that:
alert(document.getElementById('stuff').style.width);

will tell me the width that the cell SHOULD be, i.e. <td id="stuff" style="width: 150px;"> will alert me to "150px". But if, for some reason, the cell isn't actually 150 pixels wide, it still tells me 150. How can I measure the ACTUAL width (other than measuring a screen capture in PS)?

document.getElementById('stuff').offsetWidth should work.

Also usually to get width's and other CSS data you need to call your functions grabbing the width after the page loads.
