    5.3. Breaking Rules for Letters: the ‘word-break’ property
    http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-css-text-3-20131010/#word-break-property


    "Words break according to their usual rules. "


    If I understand correctly, it's not *words* that are breaking according to usual rules, but *text*.

    It may be worth clarifying that the 'usual rules' means basically according to UAX14 and the behaviour is therefore script dependent.
