Fixed width div/textarea with no scroll bars needs to expand to content
Posted on 2008-11-17
I have some dynamic text content that I need to echo. I want it to fill a space 580px in width. Should the content exceed 580 it needs to wrap and expand either the div or the texarea. I have got this to work using a textarea and wrap="virtual' in Safari but it produces on long line of text and a scroll bar in FF and IE.
I have tried max-width but that only works in Saf too.
Is this possible? It seems basic but i can't seem to find an example that works in the knowledge base.
Thanks for any help.
