Hmm. I haven't run into that issue yet mainly because I think fixed tables suck and should be avoided whenever possible. I assume that this wide table was a fixed width table?
One other tip- I create an HTMLdoc specific template that I then use as the "base" page for pdf conversion- this allows you to ixnay the frivolous (sp?) graphics, leaving only the good stuff. This is a trivial operation if you have everything in a templatting system.
HTMLdoc has an enormous amount of configuration options, I'd be surprised if you weren't able to tweak it to fix your problem on a system-wide basis.
