In the attached code if the value of

 <asp:Label ID="Label24" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("File_Desc") %>' />

gets to be to long it stretches the entire webform.  

What are my options so this does not happen
<asp:Repeater ID="rptMultiMedia" runat="server" >
		        	                        <ItemTemplate>
				                        <font size="2">
					                        <asp:Label ID="pathLabel0" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("File_Name") %>' />
                        					<br />
                        					 <asp:Label ID="Label3" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Content_Type") %>' />
                        					 
                        					 <br />
					                     
                        					    <asp:Label ID="Label24" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("File_Desc") %>' />
                        					
                        					<br />
                        					<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkView0" runat="server" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("Image_Name") %>'
						                        OnCommand="ViewFile" Text="View File" />&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp
						                           <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("Image_Name") %>'

Add a width property to the label.  Here is an example:
<asp:Label ID="Label24" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("File_Desc") %>' Width="400" />
