Hi, I was wanting to know how to limit horizontal space of data between the <td></td> tags... meaning:

If had text between the <td></td> tags I want the line of text to break to a new line after a certain amount of space used vertically.

Like this kinda:

I want all my text to automatically break after<br>
This amount of text. Do you get what I am<br>

Thank you

If you specify a width for the <td></td> then the text should wrap automatically.

<td width="50">Place your text here. Once the text is wider than 50 pixels, it will wrap to the next line.</td>

Just remember that not all browsers respect this width... you may want to use a proper block element, like a DIV.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
