We only need this to work in IE5+ but I can't seem to manage it.
We have a dynamic table (width="100%") with any number of columns, each cell with potentially a long string. I don't want any of the cells to wrap their content - but the nowrap attribute and <nobr> force the table column to expand to the length of the string which, in some cases, takes the edge of the table off screen. Basically I want the table to size normally and the cell content to *chop* if it's too big.
I could use <div> tags with no overflow but to do this I need to state the explicit size of the column; which I can't because there could be any number of columns.
Any ideas - if there is an answer I'm sure it must lie in CSS but I can't find it.
