gridview column extends page for miles

I have a gridview with a label in it that is extending it's content page as well as the master page for miles across when there is a continuous entry of characters without spaces.  For example 100 d entries, dddddddddddddd....

 I've tried adding item-style wrap and item-style width to the field, but doesn't help, those d's just go straight across without breaking to next line.

I have to have whatever is entered, regardless of how bizarre the entry may be, so no truncation.

Is there a way to break to next line after so many chars?  I would have thought the item-style settings would have fixed, but no.

thanks
