    I wrote some HTML for 2 different pages. Effects are different!

    When I specify the width for the table or the cell (<TD>), any text I type in will not wrap but overide the width and make it one long line of text instead of having it wrap.

    But in another HTML page it does wrap. What the heck is going on?

    PS. The page is centered on the one that is not working. But I dont think that should affect anything.

    EX:
    (nested table)
    <TD> <-tried to specify width here
    <TABLE> <- and here
    <TR>
    <TD> <- and here! , but none with force the text to wrap!!

    Post up the actuall code please. Chances are you just mixed up "%" and pixels because both work for width I think.

    Ya, the code itself would be nice.
