In a table with:


I want text without spaces (such as a URL or an e-mail address) to be cut of at the right side of the column. In IE this is exactly what happens, but in Firefox the text bleeds into the next cell. How can I force Firefox to cut off text?

Please note: I am not trying to start a discussion on browser merits, just want to get text to cut off.

I don't think this is possible without a scripting language to check the string length and insert a break where necessary. You could hide the extra part of the string with overflow:hidden; , but I don't think you can make it break with just CSS.

You may be able to play with the CSS overflow: hidden style. /shrug
