prevent horizontal scrolling

P: n/a
I have an application that sends HTML emails. The HTML is basically a
template that I provide, but part of the HTML is supplied by the
user. Sometimes the user inadvertently supplies HTML which cause the
the email recipient to have to scroll horizontally to see it. Is
there any tag that I can use in my template to enclose the user HTML
to make sure that doesn't happen? I've tried enclosing it in <table
width="100%"but that doesn't prevent the problem.

In general, no, apart from a rule like body { overflow: hidden }. Then
they wouldn't be able to scroll, but the missing content would just be
clipped, which would be even worse.
