I believe you can partially solve this problem by specifying WIDTH="800" (or some such) in your TABLE tag. However, this will not prevent a user from blowing the table by entering 200 consecutive characters without a space.
that is the problem I was running into. I do have the table width specified, I was hoping there was something more definate that would stop this from happening. working with resolutions is such a pain. How about specifying width in the editor tag? is this possible?

If this is the issue, check for the presence of spaces before you display your table. You may want to insert one or more.
Thank you. I will try nesting one into the body are of the page.
You can use string functions to check the length of consecutive characters. Unless you are in the medical field, the chances of encountering a word with more than about 18 chracters is pretty small. Unless, of course, the input is expected to house URL addresses.
If the input text has a string of text with more than 18 characters, give a message to the user telling them to rephrase their input. Alternatively, you could insert a space programmatically, but that would not prevent bots from entering stuff.
