I'm noticing if you have a lot of columns, or a lot of text within each column, the width can get stretched off the right-hand side of the screen.

Has anyone a quick CSS fix for this?

Ideally I guess, you don't want to have a max. character limit in each field and put elipses after that limit, to reduce the chance of this happening.

Find the ID or Class name of the conatining element (usualy a div), then apply a "max-width: xx;"


#navigation {
max-width: 200px;
