This testcase:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html style="width: 0; white-space:nowrap">
Will this<wbr>wrap?

does not wrap in Gecko 2.0, 1.9.2, 1.9.1, 1.9.0, or 1.8.1.  Gecko 1.8.1 
was released in October 2006.

So unless this section of the spec is at least that old, I think you 
recall incorrectly...

Good, good. ;)
