I needed to do this for the long XPath addresses used in my UBL
stylesheets, by preventing unwanted breaks and promoting breaks at the "/"
I did this by a recursive loop through the string adding zero-width space
​ characters to the location either immediately before or
immediately after the "/" characters (choose based on what you want to see
at the line break).
When the resulting string was short enough for my table column, the
zero-width spaces cannot be seen. When the string was too long, the breaks
were done at the embedded zero-width spaces.
I hope this helps.
