This didn't work unfortunately, although I must admit I didn't
understand the bit in parenthesis. So even the extreme of

.rightColumn {
padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px;
width: 100px;

made no difference in the page. I'm also a bit confused about what you
mentioned about the whole column expanding, since if you look at this


which doesn't have any preformatted text, the text acts as expected,
always moving to fit the width properly. It seems to be the presence
of any preformatted text that screws things up. Any other advice? I'm
going to try installing the Firebug add-on now.
