word-break is a proprietary IE-only property, however, it has been introduced into the new css3 standard. But that standard is still in the draft stage and not finalized. I think the only browser that supports it is IE right now but Firefox is working on including it fairly soon.

Thanks for the information..

Is there any other method than this to wrap a long word?

Without white space in the word, the browser does not know where to break so, no. I've seen this topic discussed elsewhere but I don't recall that a solution was ever found.

Are you sure you need to be using a table for what you are doing?

Thanks sir.

If iam not using a table what else would I use to make a number of items visible in one coumn or two column or three column format?

3-column layouts
Never use tables for layout.
