Stop word-wrap dividing words

body { word-wrap: break-word;}

I've been using that code (above) to fit the text in the body into it's container. However what I don't like about it, is that it breaks up words.

Is there another way where it will not break up words and only line break after or before a word?

EDIT: This is for use within a UIWebView.


  • use white-space: nowrap;. If you have set width on the element on which you are setting this it should work.
