What you want is possible, but please remember that HTML is a format not for print but for screen reading. You have NO control over the "paper" you're dealing with. The reader and his browser alone decide how wide the window is to be...

I admit, wthout having read Marcelo's reply before I might not have got it, but with that being more than seven hours older, this may well be just what John expected and took into account when pointing out his favourite amongst Marcelo's many solutions.
