feature: hyphens status: use tags: none prefixes kind: css polyfillurls:

CSS Text Level 3 allows you to tell the browser to break words using hyphens. Read about how to effectively use hyphens:auto and word-break in Word wrapping/hyphenation using CSS.

As there won't be any noticable effects on browsers which don't support the feature, we recommend that you use it without any polyfills or fallbacks. CSS Hyphenator is a polyfill that works on browsers that support the soft hyphen. Modernizr has good support for hyphenation detection. It'd also be wise to read The Current State of Hyphenation on the Web .
