<WBR> WORD BREAK

Description:

Used inside of the NOBR tag to specify breaking points, or when to start a new line.

Attributes:

None.

Example code:

<NOBR>
This is a long line of text that would normally scroll onto the next line of the display screen, but does not because it is contained
<WBR>
(it breaks here because of the word break tag) within the no break tags, and it is also a terrible run-on sentence.
</NOBR>

Result:

This is a long line of text that would normally scroll onto the next line of the display screen, but does not because it is contained (it breaks here because of the word break tag) within the no break tags, and it is also a terrible run-on sentence.
*Note - The deformity on this webpage is expected and shows a representation that the Word Break tag is actually working as designed.
