Dear Experts,

I want my one-line paragraph can be scrolled when it is overflow in div tag.
But the string in the paragraph has minus sign of "-" that will
break the one  line into two lines. WHy ?

I want it displayed in one line even minus-sign in the string so  I
tried to replace "-" minus sign by &#45 that is html code. But it is not
working, it still breaks it into two lines.

Now it is displayed as follow if "-" is inside
aaaaaaa-
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I want
aaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Please advise and read my simple attached php html code
Duncan

<html>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<head>
</head>
<body>
<?php
echo "<div style='overflow-x:scroll;overflow-y:scroll;background-color:yellow;width:300px;height:300px;font-size:14px'>";
echo<p>aaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa\n</p>";
echo '</div>';
?>
</body>
</html>
