I was investigating the cause of hyperlinks breaking on a friend's website. She copies over her content from email and pastes it in the Wordpress editor. In a few articles, the content between the a tags has wbr in it and that seems to break the hyperlinks. You can find it on http://chandni.org/information-about-awards-scholarships-and-more/ In case it's fixed by the time you see the thread, the copied content
<a href="http://www.msrlm.org/mrlif/faqenglish.html" target="_blank">http://www.msrlm.org/mrlif/<wbr />faqenglish.html</a>
what is shown by wordpress
<a href="http://www.msrlm.org/mrlif/faqenglish.html" target="_blank" rel="external nofollow" title="" class="ext-link"></a><a href="http://www.msrlm.org/mrlif/" rel="nofollow">http://www.msrlm.org/mrlif/</a><wbr>faqenglish.html
I am guessing it's due to the fact that it uses and not . Should I replace the former with the latter? Looking for inputs from people who're familiar with wbr tag.
