Hi
I have a table which is divided by <td> . The first table data contains text and othe other table data contains image
now what I need is that if the text exceeds the image width it covers both the table data. The mage is of a fixed width.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

here's the code
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<tr>
      <td height="100" >
         <table width="508">
      
             <% while(sponsor_iterator.hasNext()){
                 ChapterSponsor chapter_sponsor = (ChapterSponsor)sponsor_iterator.next();
             %>
            <tr>
              <td>
                  <b> Company: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getSponsor_name() %><br><br>
                  <b> Contact Information</b><br><br>
                  <b>      First Name: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_firstName() %> <br>
                  <b> Last Name: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_lastName() %> <br>
                  <b> Phone: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_phone() %> <br>
                  <b> Email: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_email() %> <br>
                  <b> Website: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getImage_link() %> <br>
                  <b> Ad copy: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getDescription() %> <br>
                  <p>
                  <hr width = "200" align ="left">
              </td>
                         
                   <td>
                  <a href ="<%= chapter_sponsor.getImage_link() %>" ><img src="attachments/sponsors/<%=chapter_ID%><%=chapter_sponsor.getSponsor_ID()%>" width="200" height="100"></a>
               </td>
      </tr>
      <p><p>
       <% } %>

let me double check.. you want that if the text exceeds the width of image then it should wrap around but should stay with in the image width
Or you dont want it to wrap around & take over the space of Image?

Since you have
<td height="100" >
         <table width="508">
     
at the top, it will fix the hight of the whole table.. i.e. you dont have much space to play around...

one option is to change the <td height="100"> to just plain <td>

or other one is to

give the inner td a specific height

<td height="80">
<b> Company: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getSponsor_name() %><br><br>
               <b> Contact Information</b><br><br>
               <b>     First Name: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_firstName() %> <br>
               <b> Last Name: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_lastName() %> <br>
               <b> Phone: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_phone() %> <br>
               <b> Email: </b><%= chapter_sponsor.getContact_email() %> <br>


try these options & let me know
