Html – How to wrap text of HTML button with fixed width

buttoncsshtmlword-wrap

I just noticed that if you give an HTML button a fixed width, the text inside the button is never wrapped. I've tried it with word-wrap, but that cuts of the word even though there are spaces available to wrap on.

How can I make the text of an HTML button with a fixed width wrap like any tablecell would?

<td class="category_column">
  <input type="submit" name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$DataList1$ctl12$ProCat_NameButton" value="Roos Sturingen / Sensors" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_DataList1_ctl12_ProCat_NameButton" class="outset" style="height:118px;width:200px;font-size:18px;color:#7F7F7F;width:200px;white-space:pre;"
  />
</td>

The CSS classes do nothing but adding borders and modify the padding.
If I add word-wrap:break-word to this button, it will wrap it like this:

Roos Sturingen / Sen
sors

And I don't want it to cut of in the middle of a word if it is possible to cut it off between words.

Best Solution

I found that you can make use of the white-space CSS property:

white-space: normal;

And it will break the words as normal text.
