I would like make suggestion for HTML and XHTML Frequently Answered Questions http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/2004/xhtml-faq 

Is there any way in (X)HTML + CSS to suggest browser where is possible break line in verylong<wbr>longlonglong<wbr>longlonglonglong word?
Or suggest browser <nobr>keep it one line if possible or break it <wbr>here and <wbr>there...</nobr>?

Even though these examples will work in some browsers, it is not a standard way. What is the standard way?

Wrap it in some nice English and put it with the right answer in FAQ. I searched the web and many people ask that question, but nobody seems to have good answer :-(
