I want to clip the contents of a cell, such that the cell dimensions remain fixed no 
matter how much text is dumped into it, with the overflow simply getting cut off.

Looking at some posts that Google turns up from 2003, giving a table cell a height 
attribute and setting overflow="hidden" is supposed to accomplish this, but doesn't. There 
seems to be some indication that isn't implemented. Is that still the case? Or has the way 
this is supposed to work changed?

How do I clip a cell?
