How do I fix HTML that keeps disappearing?

  1. I'm kind of new to HTML, so I don't know if it is the HTML I put into the website that's messed up or if it's some kind of glitch. On my site, I have a lot of tables, and in order for it to look neat, I need to have the table cells a fixed size, so a simplified version of the HTML would look like this:
    <table class="fixed">
    <table>
    <tbody>
    <colgroup>
    <col width="200px" />
    <col width="200px" />
    </colgroup>
    <tr>
    <td>hi</td>
    <td>bye></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
    It will look fine when I revert it back to visual mode, but when I update the page, the whole colgroup and col width part will be gone, leaving me with unfixed cells (the webpage would have fixed cells, but when you begin to edit it, it won't because the colgroup + col width part disappeared).

    The blog I need help with is thinknames.wordpress.com.

  2. Have you consulted this useful post re: HTML tables? http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/table-coding-for-wordpress-com-users/
