    fixed tabel cells (both width height)?

    tingvar
      My customer wants to edit/insert new content in a table on her site. I fixed the cell heights and widths by entering the respective pixels in the property inspector/code. However, when more content is added, the cells still expand.
      I inserted the table in a layer, so the width is no longer an issue i think, but the height of the table still is. (auto overflow, or 'hidden' is not the way we want to solve this since she does not want to have a scroll bar).

      Is it possible to absolutely fix the table/cells so that my customer needs to adapt her tekst/input to the cell, instead of the cell/table adapting to her input? (=her preference!)

      Thanks for your help!

          If you put a 200px tall image into a 100px tall cell it will expand.
          There's no practical way to prevent it.

          Putting the table into a layer wouldn't change anything. Now the layer will
          expand too.

          No.
