div not wrapping words

the above referenced code is not wrapping in the div content 2.

This is with HTML 5.0.

Also I have tried this:

white-space: pre-wrap; /* CSS3 */
white-space: -moz-pre-wrap; /* Firefox */
white-space: -pre-wrap; /* Opera <7 */
white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera 7 */
word-wrap: break-word; /* IE */



Thanks,
Michele

Use "clear: left" for "content2" div.

Thanks anyway for your advice, it is appreciated.

It wraps fine for me when I drop that fragment into an HTML page. There must be something else applying styles to the element. I suggest loading the page into Chrome (or Forefox with Firebug) and open the dev tools to inspect the computed CSS that is applied to the element.

P.S. Applying lots of styles with the style attribute is not recommended. You should be applying those styles though a stylesheet.
