Liquid Layout (resizing the columns of table)

hi,
i have a question. I am using liquid layout. There is a relative table with relative columns (i.e width speficed in % in the css file). on resize i want to truncate the text in the td and display "..." at the end if the text does not fit the column, and provide a tooltip to show the full contents.
How can i achieve this. Also this table is within a div tag. so on resize of the div element i have to provide this functionality. when is onResize event triggered for div ?

Thanks in advance

You are talking manipulating the table data with JavaScript since there is no HTML or CSS that does this. It would be a lot of work.

Yes that is, manipulating the entire table data on resize. But can we do it and if yes how?
Div tag has an even "onresize", when does it get triggerd. I tried

<script>
document.getElementById("divId").onresize = some function;
</script>
it did not work but when i replaced it with "window.onresize = some function" it worked when i resized by browser window.
What could be the reason. When i resize my window the height and widht of div also changes.

Thanks
