Wrap text problem

Hello Experts.
I have a problem in design view when i have a dynamic text output like:
uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.
That's why i did use a code to wrap the text above(if somebody want's to make only a joke ):
<tr><td colspan="2"  height="500" width="240">
<cfset limit = 30>
<cfloop condition="REFindNoCase('\S{#limit+1#}',qVerg.Description)">
<cfset qVerg.Description = Insert(" ",qVerg.Description,REFindNoCase('\S{#limit+1#}',qVerg.Description)+limit-1)>
          </cfloop>
                                          <cfoutput>#qVerg.Description#</cfoutput>
</td></tr>
I don't know why but the code is not working and the text don't wrap.
That what i really want is that i don't want more than 30 characters in 1 line.
Any help?

maybe you can output it in a textarea.

this will have a fixed size. no wordwrap but scrollbars.

or a fixed div with scrollbars

Hello JapyDooge.
Thank you for help but i prefer something that don't allows more that 30 characters in one line.
I have allready tried to do this with textarea but i don't like the result in design.

Hi mplungjan
This code :<tr><td colspan="2"  height="500" width="240">
<span style="width:100%; overflow:scroll">
<cfoutput>#qVerg.Description#</cfoutput></span>
</td>
has for me no result.
The mistery is that the same code (the first in the question) is wopking for me in another page.

Hi again.
I found the problem
The ... <cfoutput>#qVerg.Description#</cfoutput>....was in a <cfoutput query.....>  ....</cfoutput>and it was not working .Now i deleted the <cfoutput> and </cfoutput> and it is working:
<cfoutput query.................................>
<cfset limit = 30>
<cfloop condition="REFindNoCase('\S{#limit+1#}',qVerg.Description)">
<cfset qVerg.Description = Insert(" ",qVerg.Description,REFindNoCase('\S{#limit+1#}',qVerg.Description)+limit-1)>
          </cfloop>
                                          #qVerg.Description#.....................................<cfoutput>
