Interactive tables with searching and sorting can be a nice way of exploring data. And sometimes, you might want to share that data with other people — including text-only data like a list of Do More With R video tutorials.
But when that data includes a column with fairly long entries, that column may not fit well in a table the width of your screen. This can be especially tricky when not every row includes the very-wide column. For example, a table of questionnaire results where one field is “Do you have any additional comments?” Not everyone may.
