Text Effects

This property controls whether hyphenation is allowed to create more soft wrap opportunities within a line of text. Values have the following meanings: ‘none’ Words are not hyphenated, even if characters inside the word explicitly define hyphenation opportunities. ‘manual’ Words are only hyphenated where there are characters inside the word that explicitly suggest hyphenation opportunities (­). ‘auto’ Words may be broken at appropriate hyphenation points either as determined by hyphenation characters inside the word or as determined automatically by a language-appropriate hyphenation resource. Conditional hyphenation characters inside a word, if present, take priority over automatic resources when determining hyphenation opportunities within the word.
/* break according to localized dictionaries */
