Indeed, I see no snippet that will insert splits (other than in comments). The 
padding with spaces also caught me slightly off-guard with regards to splits. 
In my opinion, we will need a patch (or the split attribute needs to be 
removed from the tag).

While glancing at the code, I also noticed:
1) Delimiter longer than width will cause an exception
Failing test case:
o.a.t.s.u.StringW#wordWrap("abcd", 2, "myDelim", "-", true)

2) Code assumes delim length will be 1
Failing test case:
o.a.t.s.u.StringW#wordWrap("a_ _bc defghijkl", 10, "_ _", "-", true)

String Taglib committers - 

I intend to pursue patch(es) in my spare time. Would you like me to open 
separate bugzilla tickets for the above two issues?

Closing as WONTFIX.

String Taglib is being deprecated and I don't expect the wordWrap tag to make it into the Extended Taglib which will house some of its functionality.
