Default Text wrap in Datalist

I have made a simple tag board in Visual Web Developer Express using DataList control and Access Database. Since it’s a tag board, the Width needs to be small and fixed. Problem is that if I enter a long entry the width of the Datalist increases rather than wrapping the text to the next line. Placing it in a "Div" tag makes the Width scrollable but I need to wrap the text just like any other normal tag board on blogs. Perhaps I am not using the "Div" tag correctly.

I have also tried Setting the "Div" Position property to Absoulte and the DataList width and Height to 100%. But that Didn't work either.
