CSS nowrap Alternative


To achieve the same results as a TD nowrap (<td nowrap=”true”>) using cascading style sheets, use the following:

white-space: nowrap;

This style attribute only applies at the TD element level ie needs to be applied to each TD, ie not the the TR or TBODY.  If you’re desparate to not apply it to each TD,  then you can get away with only applying it to the TD’s of the first row – but this is only effective if applied to the cells containing thelongest data (so IMHO is a half-baked approach – ie don’t do it).
