    table word wrap

    for some reason where $thread is, when theres a lot of text instead of creating a new line (word wrap) it just scrolls all the text where $thread is across the screen.....i need it to word wrap










    <table width='100%' border='1' style='border: dotted 1px;' align='center' bordercolor='#000080' cellspacing='6' cellpadding='1' />

    <th align='center' background='/forum/layout/blackmap.bmp' width='20%'>
    .: $month $day, $year
    </th>

    <th align='center' background='/forum/layout/blackmap.bmp' width='80%'>
    Thread: $threadname
    </th>

    It does "word" wrap but words have some sort of separator character like a space, a comma, a semicolon, parenthesis and the like. If your text is just endless characters it's all one word as far as the browser is concerned and the browser will not break a word into two parts on an arbitrary boundary.

    Hey you know what your right. I was just testing it and i copied and pasted a lot of text and it had no spaces so it went way over. I knew that I just wasnt thinking. Thanks though.
