TABLES- can any one help me stop the text streching the tables.
The problem is when i set the value for the table and then add Text to it the text streches the table.
This is the way i do it
<*table><tr><td width="150">Alot of text</td></tr></table*> without the astricks
However the text will not go to the end of the table
and the restart underneth it will just keep going streching the table
Any Help would be great. Thanks

It should wrap fine as long as the text isn't one long word. Does it have spaces in the text?
Don't worry about putting * in your tags, the forum will still display the html instead of a table. In fact, you can make it neater by surrounding your code with the 'code' vBcode tag, see here: http://www.ahfb2000.com/webmaster_help_desk/misc.php?do=bbcode#code
Do you have an example of the stretching table online somewhere? It might be something in the rest of your code thats causing it.If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

Yes. If you have one long word causing the problem, try using a hyphen " - ". Or, you could try reducing the font size.
