CSS div width ignore content of inner div
Posted on 2011-04-25
So I had a nice table layout with 4 columns of specific, easily manageable data. My client wants me to add a "notes" display. My goal was not to specify any widths, and without the notes field it looks nice and resizes perfectly. What I would like to do is put the notes field in a div to the right of the data in the first column and set overflow to elipses. When I do that, it bases the width of that column on the notes field, which I really want the layout to just completely ignore. Hope this makes sense... ideas?
