    Stop a table expanding

    I have a table with 2 cells, one 500 wide the other 100 wide.

    when i'm populating my cell (from a db) the text (a url) i'm inputting is very long and is causing my cell to expand to fit it (way off to the right, i have to scroll over)

    how can i stop it expanding over 500 and just force the text onto the next line?

    is it possible?

    Thanks Guys

    I assume your output has no spaces between characters, there is some JavaScript that will cut your text but easy fix is to you multiline text field for the output

    Is the point to have the URL visible or is it to have it clickable? If the former then put it in a sized div with overflow:auto. If the latter then just truncate the visible part, maybe appending "..." to indicate the truncation.

    thank for the replies:

    i did some css to force the cells not to change.

    it was something like

    table-layout: fixed ;
