Wordwrap still occurs in a td element that has its WIDTH attribute set to a value smaller than the unwrapped content of the cell, even if the noWrap property is set to true. Therefore, the WIDTH attribute takes precedence over the noWrap property in this scenario.
If a td element has its noWrap set to true and the WIDTH attribute of its table element is set to a smaller dimension than the rendered content of the td element, wordwrap does not occur. In this case, the noWrap setting takes precedence over the WIDTH attribute.
