i am trying to wrap the long text which has no white space inbetween the letters within the width of the td using style syntax.
 it works fine in IE. but fails in ff.  
 so i need to break the text and insert a break or new row after each 200 characters using javascript.
 pl help.
<HTML>

<style>
  td {	 word-break:break-all; 
		 word-wrap:break-word;
		 white-space:pre-line;
      }
</style>
