Ellipses on table cells with CSS 11 May 2004 at 00:00
Internet Explorer 6.0 provides a text-overflow property called "ellipsis" which means that if the text overflows the cell's bounds, it will be truncated and appended with "...".

However, this property does not work on td tags. To get round this, do the following:

  <td style="width:40px;">
    <div style="width:40px;overflow:hidden;text-overflow:ellipsis">
    <nobr>Your long text will occur in here.</nobr>
You will need to set the width of the div to the same width as the cell, or less in order for this to work effectively.
