No, you did not understand. <wbr> is like its below the whitespace
level: if the line is to long, it breaks a word:
"This is a long line with a verylong<wbr>awesomeword in its middle."
Wbr gives the opportunity to break at long|awesome. But what i mean is:
- non existing "sbr" in parralell to shy assumed -
"Do you think me gentle,<sbr/>do you think me cold?
do you wanna risk a<sbr/>look into my thoughts?"
if line is long enough:
"Do you think me gentle, do you think me cold?
do you wanna risk a look into my thoughts?"
if line is not long enough:
"Do you think me gentle,
do you think me cold?
do you wanna risk a
look into my thoughts?"
Poems need some whitespace-element that is *above* usual whaitespaces
when it comes to linebreaks, <wbr/> and ­ are *below* all whitespaces.
