Yes, to see the effect, for example, just look at the last line of 
section 4.2 in eLyXer math show http://elyxer.nongnu.org/math.html 
while at the same time shrink slowly the width of the browser 
window so the right margin reaches the integral, then only the
"x" could go to another line while the rest of the equation (integral
sign and limits) remains at the end of the line, etc. Not all possible
breaking points in html have some sense in general in an equation 
(except for equal or operators signs, etc.).

Thanks, with that property in the css the previous case does not occur,
because the whole equation goes to another line if required (no break
points inside equations).
