Subject: screen element question

I have a screen element in my document.  The content has long lines that need 
some sort of management.

Without any intervention, the HTML rendering of the screen element is much 
wider than the surrounding text blocks.  The user must use the horizontal 
slider to view the entire screen element (and that is not a bad thing).  
Thinking ahead to PDF rendering of this screen element (a technique I have 
yet to learn) I can imagine that it may be clipped.

I've broken the lines manually at a hard character width for now.  I was 
unable to find a way to reduce the font per-screen-element-instance.

What is the proper way to handle this situation?

Make clockwise circles with your right foot. 
Now use your right hand to draw the number "6" in the air.
