Why is HTML code for responsive sizing of a Google Doc. not working?

I am looking for help with responsive sizing of Google docs.  I begin by using the external tool to embed a Google Doc. Then I switch from Rich Content Editor to HTML Editor and locate the part of the code that says "width="800" and change it to "width="100%".  However, my Google doc. is not resizing/responsive to changes of my window size.  Is there a step I'm doing wrong? I tested the same process with an image and it worked, but it is not working with the Google Doc. 

The HTML code on the top is unchanged and the HTML code below is the edited width code.

Hello @alisonchristian ...

Full discloser, I'm not a coder, but I know some basics about HTML.  Looking at your the second code snippet within your screen shot, I see that you changed it from pixels to percentage at the end of the third line.  However, have you also changed the width in the first line of that code snippet?  It still says that it is 800px.  Try making that 100%, too.

Let us know what the results are.  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon, Alison.  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
