You mean to set the width to a smaller size without dragging the corner?  I don't quite understand "drag the right corner by default"

ckeditor is very wide
I want it to be narrow in width

<text area style="width:400px height:100px; ">
words go here
</text area>

I can change height, but not width by using code


the only way I know of changing width is to resize the ckeditor using the browser

This will help you:

http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.width

Defined in: core/config.js.

you can config the width, f.e.:

config.width = 850;

or you do it with Javascript after replacing the Textarea:

This this:

CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor1',
    {
        toolbar : 'Basic',
        uiColor : '#9AB8F3'
        config.width = 850;
    });

or this:

CKEDITOR.config.width  = 850;

That .replace thing might be missing a comma after the end of the uiColor line.  But I think I would just follow this example:
http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.width
