Resizing a ContentPlaceHolder

I'm working on a new site for a minimum of 800x600 and am using master pages and contentplaceholders. I have the main page table width set to 800px and the left column set to 180px and the right column to 620px. However, when I put a contentplaceholder on the master page in the right hand column, it's wider than the 620px and is forcing a horizontal scroll bar and I don't want horizontal scrolling at all. I can't figure out how to make it narrower.

What am I missing?

Even when it's an empty contentplaceholder it's doing it. I changed the table sizes on the masterpage. This is just weird because there is nothing visible when you scroll to the right... and (with and without content and you still can see the scroll bar...)
Well I took your suggestion one step farther and used a total width of 750px and that did the trick.
Looks good, keep in mind that IE window is 2px narrower on Windows XP machines with the default blue color scheme, so it would make it 778px wide.  

In any case your 750px is a very wise choice.

have a nice weekend.
