This property specifies whether the current rendered line should break if the content exceeds the boundary of the specified rendering box for an element (this is similar in some ways to the 'clip' and 'overflow' properties in intent.) This property should only apply if the element has a visual rendering, is an inline element with explicit height/width, is absolutely positioned and/or is a block element.

div { word-wrap: break-word }
Content for the div element

Possible Values
normal: Content will exceed the boundaries of the specified rendering box.
break-word: Content will wrap to the next line when necessary, and a word-break will also occur if needed.
