I am in the process of writing a book using word. It is about 70% complete. I am putting the work in progress online in order to get feedback. As I update or add new chapters I do a "save as" html and upload to the site. It seems that the html is such that it expands or shrinks the line length according to the current width of the browser window. This often results in lines that are rather long and it makes it rather awkward to read. It makes it difficult to visually scan from the end of one line back to correctly find the start of the next line. The reader will often not realise that the word wrapping is flexible and will assume that the window can not be made narrower to fix the problem. What I would like to do is somehow arrange that the lines should be constrained in length. I can imagine that there may be a variety of ways of doing this - but I am looking for the easiest one to achieve. I don't want it to involve many complex html edits to the chapters because I want to be able to update them frequently. So I either want a very simple edit - or perhaps something more complex that can be done as a one off on the "home" page for the book - maybe I could have the home page force a certain width for the browser?
The book is here
EDIT: I split the document into chapters manually by cutting and passing single chapters into an empty word documents and saving as html from there.
