Line length... ??

Hey guys,
I was just thinking about something doing a final review on my application. My default
resolution is 1200 x 1080 and I code in this
environment, so in theory my lines can be really
long, although I tried to keep it not that bad.
But if someone from sun opens this up on 400x600 there going to think my code looks like crap as my code will wrap off there screens.
Thoughts? am I being to paranoid?
