CSS: breaking long lines

Photo of CSS: breaking long lines

It's common knowledge that browser developers make arbitrary decisions to solve problems.  Problem of the day: how to make long lines wrap, without overflowing, hiding, or scrolling.

The IE solution is:

word-wrap: break-word;

There appears to be no Netscape/Mozilla equivalent.

What were they thinking?...  Actually, I kinda like the IE solution, and I think the Mozilla team needs to follow suit in this case.
