You can specify the width relative to the font width.
For example, the following will render a section so
that there's an average of 70 characters per line:

<div style="width: 70ex">
<p> Your paragraphs go here ... </p>

The unit "ex" is about the size of the character "x"
in the currently active font, so it adapts well to
various screen resolutions and font sizes.
