HTML table word wrap

By on September 21, 2009

I created a table to display a link which consist of a long verification code plus some variable to pass to the web site. There is no any space within the long url and query string. This is not the problem, the problem is on my table, because of the link is in one long string without any space, so when it display on the screen, the table is expanded.

I come across few solution, some people suggest that using the javascript to split the string in to 2 or more row when it excess the string lenght limit. I don’t think this is the best solution, and finally get the solution of control the table using the CSS.



<table style=”word-wrap: break-word;” width=100>

Most of the developer who working in MS platform will be used to the javascript window.attachEvent.

But maybe some of you don’t know that window.attachEvent is only working on IE7+ and Opera only. Your coding will hit an javascrpit error when running at IE 6 or any version of firefox.

To resolve this issue, you may need to modify your code as such:

Original Code:

window.attachEvent(“onload”, Page_load);

function Page_load(){
//function code

Modify code:

//set page event handlers
if (window.attachEvent) {

//IE and Opera
window.attachEvent(“onload”, Page_load);

} else if (window.addEventListener) {

// IE 6
window.addEventListener(“load”, Page_Unload, false);

} else {

document.addEventListener(“load”, Page_Unload, false);


function Page_load(){

The development direction for Google Chrome is try to promote and push the web 2.0 application to the user in order to replace the tranditional window application. So Google Chrome actaully allow us to create the shortcut for the “Application” and place it on your desktop.

The application shortcut is actually directly bring you to the web page that serve your purpose with only single tab in the browser.

For example, you may create the gmail application shortcut on your desktop in order to skip the typing of “”.

What you need to do is first login to your gmail, select [Create Application Shortcut…] -> [Create Shortcut in the following location], you will ask to select the location either on desktop, start menu or quick launch bar -> you will find out that you have a new icon added to your selected location.

Unlike previosly how we open the gmail, now you can just click on the short cut that you just created and it will bring you to the gmail home page with the Google Chrome in full screen.

From this point of view, you may feel that Google Chrome is not just a normal browser like Firefox, or IE, but it more then that. Google Chrome try to step into our desktop by providing the better user experience on the Web 2.0.
