[thelist] workaround for long links making table too wide

I'm working on a site that displays a news feed from another site.
Sometimes there are very long links in the news feed that are breaking
the page layout. There are two columns (divs) side by side, with the
feed showing in the first column, and an image in the second. In
Firefox, when there is a long link in the feed, the link goes under the
image, which is fine by me, but all the text after the link goes under
the image as well. I'd like the text to wrap as it would if the link
weren't there.

I've reduced the page to the bare minimum of CSS and HTML to demonstrate
the problem; it seems that the problem is due to the long links being
inside of a table - something I am not happy about, but since the site
is built on the Joomla CMS, there's not much I can do about it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a workaround for this problem, some
CSS magic maybe?
