 @dingo_bastard: Thanks for identifying the issue and providing a patch!

 It turns out the issue was a result of characters (invisible whitespace
 characters?) in the content of the [https://wordpress.org/news/2017/05
 /wordpress-now-on-hackerone WordPress Now on HackerOne] post. Chrome has
 support for `word-break: break-word` (which Firefox does not) which likely
 prevented it from being an issue there.

 Anyhow, I retyped part of the the last sentence and everything looks fine
 now. It shouldn't be an issue that naturally occurs.

 As for the other recommendations in your patch, we generally try not to
 make changes in `wp4.css` except to fix verifiable issues or to add styles
 for new things. That styles in that file are applied to ALL of the sites
 associated with wordpress.org. Making a global change, even if well
 intentioned, might have adverse effects ''somewhere''. So unless there are
 any reproducible issues you came across that you were trying to fix, we'll
 keep the styles as-is for now.
