Thanks Vola, I will check that out. We use table styles, but I think in a
regular stylesheet, and I did set a max width but I think I do have to
double-check the medium.

Gene, there are somewhat long text strings in my third column in certain
rows, so maybe we have to rethink the format? The third column contains
configuration file keys that need to be altered (or not, depending on what
the service tech is trying to do).

For example:

<add key="XXXXXXXXX.Enabled" value="true"/>
<add key="Common.SharedFiles.Entries
value="XXXX.XXXX.XXXXXX.Business.dll:Extensions\XXXXXX\XXXXX" />


...now that I'm looking at it, do you think ti's because there is no
"break" (space) in the second string there?
