The text-wrap property specifies line breaking rules for text. This property is not supported by any major browsers at the moment of writing this tutorial.

Following values are permitted for the text-wrap property:

  • normal; Lines may break only at allowed break points.
  • unrestricted; Lines may break between any two characters.
  • suppress; Line breaking is suppressed within the element. The browser may only break lines within the element if there are no other valid break points in the line.
  • none; Lines may not break but text that does not fit in the element, overflows it.
  • initialinherit
