    Revolutionary as it may seem, you could try setting a width on your main div "content" in the stylesheet.

    You then have lots of choices to play with, explored in countless very recent threads - fixed width(px) or liquid(%) or liquid with min-width and max-width; support 800px width or 1024. The choice is yours.

    I already showed you how to do this using CSS. You have to use a proper document structure.

    Also, I know you're also just copying/pasting from Word. If you're using a program like Dreamweaver, you can have it "remove Word HTML" and "strip" the excess code, then just drop it into the program in design view.
