You'll find a lot of useful, but sometimes hard to understand information on the W3C site: http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/

There's also a great Wrox book about CSS: Beginning CSS: Cascading Style Sheets for Web Design by Richard York.

Now I'm confused. Isn't what you describe as what you want exactly what you first say you don't want - that the link spans the whole cell visually? ;)

And don't hang on so hard to those cells. As you've seen you can create a square box without a table, so what do you need it for?

ok meow, sorry for the confusion, its down to my being a web novice.

anyway.. what i have looks fine, but im struggling with the padding element, my menu is looking good, but dont understand how the '.5em & .3em' (padding) works.. ive tried to change the size, length & gap between cells and its messing me up.

In my example? 'padding' is shorthand for all 4 padding properties. -top, -right, -bottom and -left in that order.
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/box.html#propdef-padding

The gap is caused by 'margin-bottom'.

You may find this introduction useful. It's CSS 1 only, but that doesn't matter. It explains the concept in not too many words..

Or maybe start here.
