And what exactly should happen to the content?
The "overflow" property can be set to visible, hidden, scroll or auto. See descriptions here:

You don't want scroll or hidden. What about visible?

You could also try to not let the content expand horizontally...  

Also, are you talking about the body of a document or about an element like a div?

Also, what kind of content (can it be easily wrapped so that it expands vertically instead of horizontally?). An example maybe?

And you can set the overflow-x property (instead of "overflow") if you want to only address the horizontal overflow behaviour of an element.
