Hi,

I display date by retrieving from the database and showing it in a table in a jsp.
I use something like this for displaying.
<td><%=description()%></td>
where description is the value to be displayed.
I have this description ~4000 characters and everything is being displayed on one line without word wrapping.
I have tried few options but did not work.Any idea ?

Thanks,
Sai

This is not a JSP issue.
The browser has no idea that the stream of text it is interpreting was generated in JSP.

The TABLE and TD tags have a width attribute that can used to shape your page.

The following works:

<td style='width:400;text-wrap;word-wrap: break-word;'>
<%=data()%></td>
