wrap in datalist and label with long no break sentences

Is there a special way to wrap text that has no spaces between them?

eg. in a datalist that's only 300px wide and someone enters the text:

wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww


how do we wrap it so it doesn't widen the screen? Thanks

You can try inserting  <wbr/> in your text to break it off.

You can try setting below style in HTML It wirks only in IE

word-wrap: break-word;

You can also ut off the longer text and display put a lonk of "more" at end to show full text.

Hope it helps.

style="word-break:break-all;"

Seemed to work better. Is there any equivalent of this for FireFox and Safari?
