Re: Configuring tabular information

Try experimenting with using MIMEARGS in your resource file:

text/plain;maxwidth=70 (or whatever)

I've succeeded in putting my lists on the intranet site, very nice too, now
I want to convert them to the internet site, but there I've got a problem.

Our internet site is tabular to create a consistent look and feel. The table
has a width of 582, the main data display is in a column with width of 540.
The table cannot be changed (tried that) because the other 4 columns use
graphics with a fixed size.

The problem is that the converted messages have a width greater than 540 and
end up hanging over the last column. This is a dark blue and the effect is
that a white block encroaches onto this in the middle of the page.

How can I restrict the content into the 540 width? I tried using a DIV and
setting it's width to 540 with a STYLE tag but that didn't work. I tried
putting the data in a single column table but that doesn't work either.

Is there any way I can constrain the width of the message pages to only 540
pixels/characters whatever? I don't see a resource for doing that, any
suggestions how I might do this?
