Updated to link to include the fact that the text must a a textnode child of <label/> or <description/>. It's unclear to me why the original author (Dave Townsend) specified class -moz-pre must be used.

>>Both the <label> and <description> elements support wrapping text. 
Simply set the text as the .textContent rather than as the .label, or in 
the XUL as <description>This text will wrap</description>. Note that 
they prefer not to wrap, so you typically need a max-width style to 
force the issue.<<

I didn't know about that. Neil, should I update http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Code_snippets:Label_and_description with this info?
