Peter Paul Koch implemented wbr in Opera  as wbr{ content: "\00200B" }.
However, he was unable to make it work in IE8:

However, it turns out that one can enable it in IE8, very easily, if only one
uses wbr{display:inline-block} to trigger the infamous hasLayout. Peter Paul
Koch's test case, with the hasLayout trigger:
