Maybe i am using the wrong words, squishy/nowrap.
The effect i am after is for example, Notepad.
Where if i have noWrap on, and the notepadWindow is set to maybe ~50%.
If i have long lines of text, with noWrap, the rightmost portions of those long lines gets TRUNCATED.
That's the effect i am after. Where the DropDown_Menus is (purposely) to large for the TD cell.
Maybe this is a better way to say: How to Truncate_Rightmost content of a given cell?
I have a webPage of nothing but DropDown Menus each containing links of a specific Category. Typically it shows 4 DropDowns per page.
The height="100%" for TABLE works fine: as I manually shrink the window height, the DropDowns get closer and closer together, vertically.
But how can I get this same squishy behavior for the Table_width, maybe I could call it Squishy_No_wrap behavior. Where: as I shrink the window width, the DropDowns get narrow-er and narrow-er, from right to left? Below is an mini-sampling of what my code looks. If you's like me to post the whole thing, let me know. (I say no_wrap because I don't think its possible to wrap a DropDown_Menu.)
<table width="100%" height="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<table width="100%" height="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><col width=10%>
