Just fight in areas where your opponents are about same level like your character.

netto% is rounded

Bah, if you really need to know more about it ...
This table shows experience gained as a percentage value, if a character kills a monster with mLvl = cLvl. Scaling factors like level difference, player count and party bonus don't figure in here.

In 1.1x some maps get increased area level compared to 1.09. In addition monster level (mLvl) of map's inhabitants is set to match area level in Nightmare and Hell. So there's great opportunity to gain some extra experience where it wasn't possible before. Plus drop's quality is increased, since treasure class and mLvl are connected.
Most prominent are maps with area level 85 in Hell:

mLvl and areaLvl in Nightmare and Hell
kind of monstermonster level
in Normal mLvl is taken from MonStats.txt directly
normal monstermLvl = areaLvl
ChampionsmLvl = areaLvl + 2
random bossmLvl = areaLvl + 3
boss minionsmLvl = areaLvl + 3

No subject to this rules are Act Bosses, some Quest Bosses and Superunique Bosses, see Bosses FAQtoid. Same for Putrid Defilers. Have a listing:

This page also contains a listing of all area levels at the appendix. I'm only aware of a german source for quickly checking maps and inhabitants, you may've guessed already I refer to Atair's d2wissen.
It lacks the 1.11 areas related to Hellfire Torch. Those maps all have area level of 83, whereas the Prime Uber Evils and the Lesser Prime Uber Evils themselves have mLvl=110.

A character dying in Nightmare difficulty looses 5% of the total experience needed to gain next cLvl, in Hell difficulty it's 10%. If you can save your corpse you'll regain 75% of the straight lost experience. It is even possible to levelup when looting your own corpse, if you have gained enough experience on the way back to it.

Conversed monsters' kills will give experience to the converting character, their own death during conversion won't. Kills by thorny damage will give experience to the character causing the thorny effect. Surprisingly kills by thorny damage reflected from boney walls give no experience.

Hireling's experience is calculated separately, it is not substracted from character's exp.
There's also a formula:

Exp/lvl = (exp/lvl) * hLvl2 * (hLvl + 1)

Exp/lvl: experience needed to level up (exp/lvl): hireling.txt entry hLvl: actual hireling level

Up to Patch 1.10 a hireling gained per kill a maximum of 1/64 experience needed to level up. No matter if the killed were Blood Moor Zombies or Diablo. If the character or his pets killed a monster, the hireling got a maximum of 1/192 experience needed to level up.
Patch 1.11 did change this detail.
