What can I do to get my text to fit within my div?

I've got it working, guys! You can see by the attached screenshot that the hour plus worth of work needed to manually adjust the width of every table cell beneath my graphic proved fruitful and it looks good.

The problem is, however, that when I arranged my widths, I did so without any content in order to have the consistency I needed to focus solely on dimensions. When I put my text in, that's when I noticed that because of the way my text wrapped, sometimes it forced that div to expand thus messing up my "look."

So, I used "word-break:break-all;" to compel my text to behave, but now I have the unnatural text wrapping where words are getting broken up into nonsensical word fragments and I wanted to appeal to the ninjas to see if there's a better way.

Here's what I've got:

This is the styling I'm using for the "description" cell (the one with all the text in it):

<td class="project_name" style="width:392px; word-break:break-all;">

Do I have another option available to me that would afford me the chance to display all of that text with hyphenated breaks that acknowledge the dimensions of that cell as opposed to the way the words currently display as randomly broken up word fragments?

What do you think?

Setting break-all seem like a really odd thing to do. Remove that and your words will break naturally.

If you want the text to touch the right side of the cell without the weird word fragments, use text-align:justify (table 3 in this fiddle).
