Subject: Using Defer on Dynamic Expressions?

Hello Mathgroup,
I am doing a little notebook programming and am stuck on something:

Note that these two commands differ in their behavior:

CellPrint[
ExpressionCell[
Defer[
Table[x, {x, 0, 10, 1}]
],
"Input"]
]

CellPrint[
ExpressionCell[
Defer[
Manipulate[x, {x, 0, 10, 1}]
],
"Input"]
]

The front end seems to ignore the Defer request when a command would
have dynamic output. Is there any way to get the same behavior (i.e.,
that for Table) as for Manipulate?

Thanks, Craig
