Soft hyphens are automatically added in the content for a nicer automatic word wrap. Particularly suitable for justification. Uses Hyphenator.js.

Hyphenator automatically inserts separators in the content, so that at the end of line the text is wrapped with a dash if applicable. Hyphenator.js, a JavaScript available under the terms of LGPL v3, is used. It fields the algorithm known from OpenOffice and LaTeX. As this is executed client-sidedly, it adapts itself to the respective browser environment and thus avoids a faulty display. The script is particularly suitable for justification and supports a variety of languages.
