What is it?
The WBR element is a stand-alone element which indicates to the browser where a particular word is ALLOWED to be broken. This does not necessarily mean that the word WILL be broken at this point - it is just a guide for the browser. Within the context of the NOBR element, the WBR element EXPLICITLY tells the browser where to put the word/line break.

<nobr>This is a really super-duper, extremely long run of no<wbr />break
text which should be broken only where we tell it to</nobr>
