you can not wrap it unless you divide it up with spaces - browsers will not wrap unbroken character strings

There is no way to force wrapping on very long strings. If you get a string that long into a TD that small, there may be more of a design problem. The solution as so many will say, is to make sure your text is not just a long string of characters. When there's no space between the characters, the browser assumes it is one word and it won't break it.

Regards,
Max.

Hi,

for text wrapping in TD ,use  <br> tag.

Example code:
-------------------------
<TD style="WIDTH: 20px"> gsdjbkbhjsbhf<br>gsdfdbhksjbnd<br>fhshkdfhssbhdsdbh<br>sdkhjksbhsdhshsh</TD>

output:
---------
gsdjbkbhjsbhf
gsdfdbhksjbnd
fhshkdfhssbhdsdbh
sdkhjksbhsdhshsh

If you're on an apache server, give your page a .php extension and do:

<td style='width:20px;'><?php echo wordwrap("245245234523452345234523452345345", 5, "<br>"); ?></td>

The 5 is number of characters, so adjust is a necessary to fit.
