What is the CSS word-wrap property used for?

A wonderful CSS property is the word-wrap. For example let's say there is a website which has a dynamic RSS feed and its div container is not wide enough to show long urls. By default they will overlap the div or paragraph container... which doesn't look good! With word-wrap it forces the long url to break and wrap onto the next line.

This is an example of the CSS usage:

.large_url_container {
    word-wrap: break-word;

And here is an example without the CSS word-wrap property...

... and with the CSS word-wrap property added.
