Hi

(http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-text/ gives a server error for me.)

http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-text/#overflow-wrap0

Why is word-wrap renamed to overflow-wrap? The spec says UAs may support  
word-wrap also. This seems very silly. Please stick to word-wrap which is  
implemented in multiple browsers for years and is used by Web content.  
Renaming widely deployed features should not be done, even if the name is  
suboptimal.

cheers
