How to make the content of a span wrap onto the next line in an embedded


Problem :

I have the following situation:

<li style="width:100px">    <!--display:block-->
    <a href="...">          <!--display:block-->
        <span>Link text Which is longer than 100px</span><!--display:inline-->

At the moment the long text is expanding beyond the outer limits of the <li> but I would like it to wrap onto a second line.

How can I achieve this with css?

Solution :

You would use word-break: break-all to achieve this.


span {
    word-break: break-all;
