There is no protection against that. The last time I thought about it (a
long time ago), I couldn't come up with a solution that would work
without knowing how wide the available area actually is.

That was back when CSS support in browsers was still unreliable. There
may be better ways now, e.g. something based on overflow-x.

The other alternative would be to introduce an arbitrary but
configurable max. word length.
