I18N-ISSUE-345: Arabic Hyphenation [.prep-CSS3-text]


Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: .prep-CSS3-text

6.1 Hyphenation Control: the hyphens property

"When shaping scripts such as Arabic are allowed to break within words due to hyphenation, the characters must still be shaped as if the word were not broken."

I have seen a mail thread about hyphenation of Latin text within Arabic, but I've heard a from a few experts that hyphenation is not actually used for Arabic-script text. Do we have some evidence that it is used?  Just curious.
