Thanks for sending the google search page Eric.
Before posting this question here, i did google search and none of the options worked out.
I was told that Firefox 3.5 supports word break , so i updated my Firefox version, but still the problem is not fixed.

Thanks.

What does the generated code look like, looking at the serverside code does not help in the HTML/CSS World.

First, is the value of the "lengthy line" dynamic? If not, just add a
tag wherever you'd like it to wrap.

Second, have you tried predefining the width of the column?

My thinking is that unless Firefox has a great reason to break that word, it's not going to. And the only great reason as far as Firefox is concerned is if the word will not fit the defined width of that TD, then it'd wrap it.

As Eric pointed out, showing us 3rd-party JSP tags is useless in an HTML forum. Until we see what;s being sent to the browser, we can't really say what's going on.
