wrap-up text in table

i need to limit the display of the column date in my table?I used css property:width, but, in case the field width exceeds it scrolls over to the next line, i do not want that, i want to view the rest of the text only if i scroll over
how can that be achieved?

Use overflow:scroll

Hi, i used this and it works, but i have just another problem:

Problem 1: The scrollbars are visible[though disabled] even when the text to be viewed is within the column width limit, how do i make it visible only when the the text is large and cannot fit the column widht?

Problem 2: Can i decrease the height and width of the scrollbars in any way?

This is what ive used:-
<td >
<div style="width:90px; height: 10px; text-align: center;
overflow-x:scroll;white-space: nowrap;">
just some text that is scrollable

1) I'm going to say 'no' but I recall reading about this somewhere and don't recall the conclusion. I'll look for it.
2) No.

From what I read, overflow-x does not work right in IE.
