Grid view Column- Apply Word wrap to work in all browser

Sometimes in gridview we have a column which has too much information so it is not shown properly on page.

We can achieve with the help of CSS.
    white-space: pre; /* CSS 2.0 */
    white-space: pre-wrap; /* CSS 2.1 */
    white-space: pre-line; /* CSS 3.0 */
    white-space: -pre-wrap; /* Opera 4-6 */
    white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera 7 */
    white-space: -moz-pre-wrap; /* Mozilla */
    white-space: -hp-pre-wrap; /* HP Printers */
    word-wrap: break-word; /* IE 5+ */
We have defined a css class, and we can assign this cssclass to column which has too much information.

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Name On Document" meta:resourcekey="HeaderText_NameOnResource1">
    <HeaderStyle Width="100px" Font-Bold="true" />
            <div style="word-wrap: break-word; width: 100px;">
                 <%# Eval("NameOnDocument")%>
        <ItemStyle Width="100px" CssClass="word_wrap" Wrap="true" />

Happy Coding!!
