So you guys solve this problem with word wrapping. However I notice in the comments of this post the text makes the page go wider and overlap the related column. Using Firefox 3.6.3/windows7
Impossible to fix with variable width <div> which is what we have in comments. (size depends on how many votes, whether you have flag/vote controls, etc)
And no, I don't want to make them fixed width.
