The solution below causes the text to be all jammed together. Throwing in the <pre> tags puts me back in the origional predicament. Any other ideas or am I screwed?<BR><BR>*******<BR><BR>Reply: <td width="200"><%=read_text>& <BR><BR>*******<BR><BR>I'm using this code to read a text file into a page within a table structure. <BR><BR>set act = fso.opentextfile(server.mappath(u_file)) <BR>read_text = act.readall <BR>act.close <BR><BR>' Write the contents of the document out to the browser<BR>Response.Write "<font size='-1'><pre>" & server.htmlencode(read_text) & "</pre></font>"<BR><BR>Of course, it expands the table cell to wherever enter was hit in the file or if word wrap is on it goes way off the screen. Is there a way to force the text to fit a certain cell width and retain its text formating?
