table-Layout:fixed; ok for IE but not for FireFox

P: n/a
Hi all.

I'm trying to hide the extra content in a html table cell if the
content is to wide.

In IE it's easy, I just give the styling for the table an attribute of
table-Layout:fixed but thie doesnt work for FireFox, the columns still
get as wide as the content. I dont want to wrap the text either.
If the content is too wide, I want to hide it.

Thanks all.

Graham

The only reliable way I have been able to quickly do it in FF and my
Safari is:

But Opera is simply extraordinarily deaf to all such tricks and even
ignores the font-size when it suits it!
