Pro-tip: links are not text. If you are desperately trying to truncate a link with an ellipsis so that it fits into your table nicely, puttingĀ text-overflow:ellipsis; on the td element will not work. It will continue not to work no matter how much you swear at it until you finally realize links are not text and put the text-overflow:ellipsis; on the a element. Now you know :)
