CSS Question

Word-wrap not working in Internet Explorer

When I'm using

word-wrap:break-word
with Browser Mode: IE9 Compatibility View and Document Mode: IE7 standards its working perfectly fine. However when I change the Document Mode: IE9 standards, its not working.
I've also tried using
-ms-word-wrap:break-word
however its giving me the same result.

Document Type Definition: DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd

Can anyone tell me why is it so and if there is any workaround to cope up with it ?

Answer

you need to have

table {
    width:100%;
    table-layout:fixed;
}

and put word-wrap in table,td,th not into span
