Is there a way of customising the format of the tables in the LaTeX output ?

I have some big tables in my document, more importantly the columns are of
vastly different sizes. When I render to HTML (db2html) I get a nice looking
table (each column is sized to the largets content).

When using db2ps, I get TeX output that seems to constrain each column to be
1/n of the table with (n=number of columns). This looks terrible and almost
doubles the number of pages, since every row wraps..

The actual jade generated tex includes a call to TeXTable (defined in
jadetex.dtx), the call looks something like...


When what I really want is something like...


Can this be done in stylesheets or must I hack the jade code ? If it can be
done in stylesheets, can someone help me ?
