Please note: the file you wish to create to adjust text-wrapping is

MediaWiki:Common.css is a file "on wiki"; which administrators can edit in
the browser.
It contains CSS that will apply to the entire wiki.
It's in the 'MediaWiki' namespace (as opposed to 'Main', 'Project',
'Template', 'Talk', 'User', etc.)
It's singular (not to be confused with the Wikimedia Commons
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page>, where all free files can be
found. )
