Adding "nowrap" to a table cell or row should force the browser to not wrap
lines at spaces. However, media wiki ignores these. For example, putting this
in an article:
<TD nowrap>hello world</TD>
will generate the following HTML:
which is clearly missing the nowrap attribute. The only way to actually force
this is to replace all spaces with the "& nbsp ;" equivalent, which is nothing
short of a hack.
The nowrap attribute is deprecated in HTML 4, and since we don't already support it we probably aren't going to add it.
Have you tried the equivalent CSS bit?
Something like style="white-space:nowrap" should do it.
Actually, the updated HTML sanitizer code in 1.5 already allows this attribute. Resolving FIXED.
