[thelist] Opposite of nowrap

There are various methods to specify a nowrap property on text. Is 
there the opposite? I have a form that retrieves results and sometimes 
there are things like URLs that are way too long for the space and it 
breaks the layout. I'd like the text to break anywhere it needs to so 
it will fit. Or at the very least, specify it's ok to break on other 
non-letter characters besides the hyphen.

I tried using javascript to add "\n" as needed, but that effort was 
iffy. Maybe there is some better javascript already written, or a CSS 
or HTML property I haven't heard of?

And no, something like tinyurl isn't an option. It isn't always URLs 
for one thing.
