Steps to reproduce

Here’s a repro.

This issue is also visible in the example on the mdn page for <wbr> :


This is important to the docs.microsoft.com team because we want to use <wbr> to indicate word break opportunities in our documentation. For example:


Currently we’re using a zero width space but the character ends up in user’s clipboards when they copy text.

Bug does not reproduce in Chrome or FireFox or Safari. Internet Explorer 11 does not support <wbr>.
