Text overflowing table cell when overflow: hidden used.

This is with 6.0r6. The text displays over the next cell and beyond. It still overflows if the white-space: nowrap is removed.

table.test {
    width           :  200px;

td.long {
    overflow    : hidden;
    white-space : nowrap;
    width       : 100px;
    border      : 1px solid black;
td.blank {
    width    : 100px;
    border      : 1px solid red;
<table class="test">
       <td class="long">supercalifriagilisticexpialidocious Test 123</td>
       <td class="blank">Next</td>
You're right, looks like the overflow property is not handled properly on table cells. A quick workaround would be to add a div inside the table cell and use the overflow property on that, which seems to work:
<td><div style="overflow: hidden">long text</div></td>
That worked. Thank you.
Today we have released Prince 6.0 rev 7, which supports the overflow property on table cells. Thanks for letting us know. :)
