Real Simple HTML Help

Just started building a website. Minimal markup. Just header, wrapper, content, aside, footer.

Set wrapper's max-width to 980px and inserted some paragraphs into #content and aside.

For some reasons the content in these <p> graphs are not staying constrained within my #content and aside.

All divs and tags are closed, markup is clean on validator. This should be an easy fix. Can send HTML/CSS to someone if neccessary.

Try using paragraphs with words instead of one long word.
