Table scroll bars

Ok, I have a table with two rows. On the first row, I can input text in it, and when I click a button, the text automatically appears in the second row.

The problem is that when I input a text that is too long or too large for the table, then press the button, the second row will not use scrollbars, even though I use overflow:scroll and set the width and height of the td. Instead, it will make the table expand.

What is the right method to use to make the second row use scrollbars?

cool thanks. I've used divs instead of table, and it works great

One trick is to change the display value of the td, you could target the tr and see what happens, and there is a max-wdith parameter that might also help force the overflow.

I have just looked it up in CSS the Definitive Guide, and overflow only applies to block-level and replaced elements, so you could change the display param to block on the td, by default it is normally set to table-cell.
