Maximum number of table columns in from UX point of view

Does anyone have any clear UX guidelines on the number of columns to use in HTML tables. Current client wants upwards of 25 columns!! They just don't seem to understand the UX implications of this and why we need to reduce it.
Also, has anyone come across any nice methods of presenting tables that have a fixed left column but a tabbed X-axis? I.e. we shrink the 25 columns into 2/3 tabs hiding some of the content until a tab is selected??
