    The text should wrap automatically. (Unless you have no spaces at all in your text) Can you provide a sample of the code you’re using – including html doctype, or better still, a live page to look at.

    yes box i was testing out with text having no space..after i tested with text having spaces in it ..it is fine..but how to deal with text having no space (i dont think there exist a valid word having no space in it which is so long for my div )…but if there is any or someone make out of his own while submitting a comment how to deal with that then…

    If no single word exists that is longer than your box you are fine. If you are really worried about people typing in a zillion characters without spacing into that area and having it ruin the design, then bust out overflow: hidden; to prevent it.
