This CSS property controls automatic hyphenations. The automatic hyphenation is strongly demanded as seen in crbug.com/47083, and is already supported by all other major browsers. Blink enables the following values on all platforms: "manual" - the initial value. "none" - disables soft hyphens. and the following value on Android and Mac: "auto" - enables the automatic hyphenation for languages where the underlying operating system has dictionaries.
