Old Newspaper titles are huge, and that is how they are supposed to be. In some situations, that may create some awkward word-breaks here and there. Here is how to control it in the unlikely event of an emergency.

Warning: If you export your content, WordPress will remove all your shy tags from the titles and you will have to put them back in again. So this is for the really nit-picky!
