I'm rather new with css and i cannot figure, how can i made a table with fixed height and width that contains dynamically filled text, which should NOT resize height of the table.

Is there any css answer to this problem? Sample layout would be:

<table width="400" height="400" class="fixedWin" cellpadding="6"><tr><td>
<div id="container">
This is where all the dynamically loaded text will come
Now, when text on table is filling, i'd like that text to "disappear" on the bottom of the table, when text rows height exceeds table height (=400). I have tryed to do it with max-height, overflow, flood,.. and so on, but my experince with css is limited and i cannot find solution by myself.
