I'm looking for what I thought would be an easy style definition. I want to designate a particular column of a table to NOT wrap. I looked for something like <colgroup nowrap> but of course nowrap is not an attribute. So I thought of <colgroup style="word-wrap: none"> or something like that, but I can only find 'normal' and 'break-word' as attributes. Normal means wrap on word boundaries (whitespace) and break-word mean break in the middle of a word if need be. I don't find an attribute for no-wrap (in addition to trying 'none' I also tried 'nowrap', 'no-wrap' and 'void', just for the heck of it).

Is there such an attribute? Is there some other way to accomplish what I want?
