<?php
$row_color='blue';
echo'
<style>
    div.col1{width:10%;border-width:1px;border-color:blue;border-style:solid;float:left;}
    div.col2{width:50%;border-width:1px;border-color:blue;border-style:solid;float:left;}
    div.col3{width:40%;border-width:1px;border-color:blue;border-style:solid;float:left;}
</style>
 <div class="col1">stuff</div>
  <div class="col2">stuff</div>
  <div class="col3">stuff</div>
  <div style="clear:both"></div>
   <div class="col1">stuff</div>
  <div class="col2">stuff<br>morestuff<br>looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong word</div>
  <div class="col3">stuff</div>
  <div style="clear:both"></div>
   <div class="col1">stuff</div>
  <div class="col2">stuff</div>
  <div class="col3">stuff</div>

Open in new window


is there a way to cut off long words (maybe hyphenate long word) because this is cutting into the next column

overflow:hidden; I do not want because I can not see the long urls and I want to copy paste
div.col3{width:40%;border-width:1px;border-color:blue;border-style:solid;float:left;overflow:hidden;}

Add css attribute:
 word-wrap: break-word;

Open in new window


CSS is:

div.col2{border-color: blue;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 1px;
    float: left;
    width: 50%;
    word-wrap: break-word;}
