    Text that doesn't move

    Here's my problem:

    When I resize my page, the text moves and reforms with the page, sometimes making the shape of the paragraph very distorted and the text unreadable. I can make the left side of the text stay put by using <DIV STYLE="position: absolute; left: 20px; top: 50px">, however, when the window is resized, the right side always moves so that the text will be displayed, and this creates my problem.

    I have seen a few pages on the internet that when the page is resized, the text and paragraph don't move and the text is simply covered by the window, forcing the user to resize the window to read all of the text. This is what I want.

    How do I do this??

    Surely a page should be designed so that users may use whatever text size suits them, and the page still makes sense?

    it's not the text size i'm worried about. that's not the issue. the issue is when the page is resized to be very small from left to right, the shape of the paragraph is distorted so that sometimes only 1 or 2 words appear on a line, making the page very long and the user must scroll down very far to read the whole thing.
