Sharepoint 2007 Survey

After days now going over web articles. I have just thought lets just ask the experts.

So I have what might seem to be a really simple thing but it's stumping me.

You take a standard Sharepoint Survey with a sliding scale questions.

How can I make the questions stop word wrapping and reduce the horizontal spacing between the radio buttons. The table should have lots of room, but the blue vertical line separating the questions from the radio buttons just makes the question area to small for me, and fills the remaining space with radio buttons.


Please help, it might be simple to you, but it's baffling me. Hence why I willing to award all 500 points.

The only way to adjust the behavior of these elements is on the client-side.  Using the IE Developer Toolbar you could identify the elements (such as table cells) that need to be adjusted and use jQuery on the page to widen or otherwise adjust the element.

chapmanjw: Thanks for the advice, I will give it a go.
I have never needed to use jQuery script before so if anyone has an example, that would also be gratefully received.

For jQuery, start at jquery.com.  There are some good tutorials to get your feet wet so you know how it works.

When you add the jQuery reference and code in SharePoint, just add it in a Content Editor Web Part.
