    Question:

    Is it possible to wrap labels when using GeoServer to style my WMS layers?

    Answer:

    Yes, this can be done by updating your Style file (SLD).

    For example, here is a WMS layer using labels without wrapping.

    If you update your Text Symbolizer adding the line highlighted below…

    <se:TextSymbolizer>

    <se:VendorOption name="autoWrap">10</se:VendorOption>

    </se:TextSymbolizer>

    …. this will then auto wrap your label. The value of 10, will be the number of characters allowed before wrapping occurs.
