It can be done depending on how you process your document. Tex-
>dvipdfm is OK as long as you don't have any postscript or pstricks
stuff in your document. From the hyperref README:
* Wrapped/broken link support
Only few drivers support automatically wrapped/broken links,
e.g. pdftex, dvipdfm, hypertex. Other drivers lack this
feature, e.g. dvips, dvipsone.
* For long section or caption titles in the table of contents
or list of figures/tables option "linktocpage" can be used.
Then the page number will be a link, and the overlong section
title is not forced into an one line link with overvull \hbox
* "\url"s are caught by package "breakurl".
* The option "breaklinks" is intended for internal use. But it
can be used to force link wrapping, e.g. when printing a
document. However, when such a document is converted to PDF
and viewed with a PDF viewer, the active link area will be
Another limitation: some penalties are "optimized" by TeX,
thus there are missing break points, especially within
\url. (See thread "hyperref.sty, breaklinks and url.sty 3.2"
in comp.text.tex 2005-09).
