RE: [css3-text] alternate name for line-break: newspaper

It looks like it's not easy to reach consensus even for native English speakers.

Should we move on to numbers as David Singer suggested?
  20: newspaper
  50: normal
  80: strict
I can live without names if that makes everyone happy.

Um, yeah, that's what I meant. :)

The problem is that "basic" then becomes confusable with "normal".
