How can I make ASP.net Web Form buttons wrap?

Apparenly ASP.net Web Form buttons do not wrap their text. How can I force them to wrap in the properties?
Found I could use code Button.text = "Line1" & vbCRLF & "Line2", but there must be an easier way.

Hi,

The following I stole it from Google. The message was posted by a guy from Microsoft online support. I guess it should help you. Take a look

Thanks for posting in the community!
From your description, you'd like to make the text of the html button on
the web page auto wrap when there are multi words in it and the width is
not enought, yes?

After some researching , I found that it seems a existing limitation of the
html buttons that the normal word-wrap css style not works on them.
There're  three kinds of button in html page:
<input type=submit ..>
<input type=button ..>
<button >

the ASP.NET server button is usually mapped to the <input type=submit>
So if we use the above two kinds of button, we may meet the limitation of
wrapping the button's text.
However, I've found some one use the below styles of button which can
contains a text block(which has been set the word-wrap style).
------------------------------
<BUTTON id="btnWrap" type="button" runat="server">
       <div style="PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 0px; PADDING-BOTTOM:
0px; MARGIN: 0px; WIDTH: 70px; PADDING-TOP: 0px; HEIGHT: 48px; WORD-WRAP:
break-word"
        width="100%">this is a casfdsfdsfsdfsdfsfsdfdsfsft</div>
</BUTTON>
------------------------------

So do you think it possbile that we use the above means to workaround this
problem? Please have a check and feel free to let me know if you have any
other ideas. Thanks.
