Elegant <td> overflow

Here’s what I have now which I don’t like:

<td><div style="padding-bottom: 2px; width: 250px; overflow-x: auto;">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Donec scelerisque 
purus vitae wisi accumsan fringilla.</div><td>

What I don’t like is the scroll bar appearing on the bottom (just like in the text box above) which makes the row height increase.

What I would like is something that doesn’t disturb the vertical dimension of the table row when an overflow occurs. I can imagine a scroll arrow (by itself - without scroll bar) appearing in-line with the cell text at the right border that the user could click on to scroll right. Something like that. Or perhaps a CSS popup. But would have to detect overflow.
