html table fixed height

cophi asked
Last Modified: 2007-12-19
I have a table that is inside a div with an aboslute position.  Let's say this table fits 4 rows comfortably at a font size of X.  If I have 8 row's, it'll will make the row's a little bit smaller but I still do not see every row.  Some of the rows cut off.  So let's say I only see 6 rows on the page.  I'm trying to get it so all the row's show in this space no matter how many row's I add without adjusting the font.  So if it cut's off the text that's fine.  This is all based on percentages so I can assign a magical fixed height number to each row.  Any idea's?
