try using in CSS -- display:inline;    or display:inline-block;   to style the text giving problems.

in IE.. padding subtracts from the total width of an object as opposed to adding to it.

So when you have and object that is about 200px wide.. and you have 20px padding on left, and 150px padding on right... That only leaves 30px of space for words.. Which is why your words are breaking.
