Problem

I have long text word in div and I'd like to break it into couple 
of lines instead of going out of the border. 
Screenshot with this problem:


Code with this problem:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
<html>
<body>
	<div style="width: 150px; border: 1px solid black;">
		<div>Initially only implemented client-side in web browsers,
			JavaScriptJavaScriptJavaScriptJavaScriptJavaScript engines</div>
	</div>
</body>
</html>

This text:

JavaScriptJavaScriptJavaScriptJavaScriptJavaScript

will go outside of the 150px box.
How to fix it?

Solution

overflow-wrap: break-word;

Just add this 1 line and it fixes the problem.
Yours fixed example:

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
<html>
<body>
	<div style="width: 150px; border: 1px solid black; overflow-wrap: break-word;">
